The Maltings

Sleeping Beauty Pantomime 2016

"My children were giggling away and loved joining in the actions, screaming at the stage and admiring the fake snow falling from the ceiling. As far as they were concerned the holidays had started and the party was just beginning"
- Berwick Advertiser, 22 Dec 2016

Let all your dreams come true...

A magical spell cast a long time ago

Holds a secret only the fairies should know,
But a dragon is spying from his lair high above
And the princess, well she is looking for love...
Our story begins with a huge celebration,
Everyone is invited to this special occasion,
All except one and she's mad as can be
What happens next, just wait and see...

Set in a wonderful fairy tale world of castles, magic forests, Perfect Princes and a Beautiful Princess, all the panto essentials are here – the charming young heroine in need of her Prince, her sweet but silly best friend, a truly terrifying wicked witch, and of course a glamorously gowned and be-wigged Dame. Plus a few surprises, including a dragon called Dexter!

Join in the fun at Nanny Wishsticks Waltzing Wonderland, follow Sleeping Beauty’s search for her Perfect Prince, gasp when a long ago curse becomes reality, and root for Princess Flora and her search for true love’s kiss to wake her from a deep, deep sleep…


Following the sell-out success of last year’s Little Red Riding Hood, our Panto will once again be written and directed by the Maltings’ very own Wendy Payn – the creative force behind The Maltings hugely successful Here Come The Girls musical extravaganzas and a host of previous Christmas shows – and produced by the Maltings team. 

The Maltings’ Christmas show-stopper is an essential part of Berwick’s Christmas celebrations, delighting hundreds of families each year. This December it's time to Let All Your Dreams Come True, as our team conjure up the much loved tale of Sleeping Beauty as a seasonal extravaganza for all the family.

"The Maltings’ very own Christmas production was very cheeky, but very fun and every child in the audience went away with a smile on their face. As I was leaving, one little boy said: “That was the best thing I’ve ever seen”." - Berwick Advertiser review on Little Red Riding Hood 2015
