A great panto for all the family. Did you know that Cinderella had a little mouse called Timothy? And that the two silly Ugly Sisters had a nasty cat called Cornelius? Oh yes they did! And there are plenty more surprises in store with our magical version of everyone’s favourite story.

So join in and have fun with our classic fairy tale production.

This puppet show has been designed by the Purves Puppets company as a family show, with fun, magic and music to fascinate your child – and Mums and Dads too!

The #1 Best-Rated in TripAdvisor for Theatre & Concerts in South Lanarkshire

Outstanding

The morning show is specifically aimed at young children, with nurseries traveling for miles to let their kids see the puppets. It kept our 2 year old and 5 month old entertained the entire time.
