We can’t wait to welcome our audiences into the Maltings to join us this festive season!

During this performance, Christopher will use the natural pauses in the action to deliver a live narration to the listener’s personal headset.

BSL interpretation – delivered by Christy Dodds

The BSL interpreted element of this performance of Cinderella involves Christy joining the actors on stage, which means that you don’t need to choose between following the action or the language. We would recommend that anyone wishing to take full advantage of the BSL interpretation should book tickets in rows C to H, ideally in seats 1 – 12 if available.

Please do not hesitate to contact our box office if you require any assistance. We can also arrange a BSL booking service by emailing

The best panto I have seen for a long time, could have sat and watched it all over again, well done!
