It’s pantomime time at The Maltings, Berwick, when the magical, musical show Dick Whittington comes to town.

Bespoke Theatre, which was behind last year’s record-breaking hit Cinderella, returns to the venue for its fifth anniversary, action-packed spectacular.

This fun-filled story follows a young Dick Whittington, who, seeking independence and fame, moves to the bright lights of Berwick-upon-Thames to find his fortune.

But the streets aren’t paved with gold and below them is an evil rat army plotting destruction.

Dick’s going to need the help of his trusty cat, Tommy, if he’s to save the day.

With stunning sets, outrageous costumes and more mystery, magic and mayhem than ever before, Dick Whittington and his cat is a new twist on an old tale for the whole family.
