A traditional family pantomime, with an Eastern theme, promised to be a pure Turkish Delight!

So you think you know all about Richard the Lionheart and the crusades?

Did you know that Richard was a master of disguise and an expert snake-charmer? Have you heard that he knew all the cool-cats at the Kasbah?

Learn all this and more in our zany panto romp with Richard the Lionheart and his Crusaders.

Join the fun with the crazy cast of eunuchs, spaced-out assassins, a suspiciously masculine English dame, a pantomime camel, a flying carpet and bizarre genies.
