Featuring themes of redemption, compassion and love, it's the perfect production for all the family to enjoy, offering plenty of food for thought.
What's Christmas without a cheesy pantomime I hear you say? Head to the Lyric Hammersmith theatre for a 2-hour long festive themed spectacular perfect for all of the family to enjoy. Situated in the newly refurbished auditorium, the classic pantomime tale is guaranteed to make you laugh with a hilarious dame, a host of innuendos and plenty of audience participation to get involved with. Dick Whittington is family fun for all, with the added bonus of tons of free sweets being thrown into the crowd throughout.
