Courtyard Hereford – Dick Whittington Pantomime 2023 – 2024

As the Courtyard Theatre celebrates its 25th anniversary, they’re putting on a fantastic family pantomime. This year, Dick Whittington and his cat are embarking on an adventure to find fame and fortune. From rags to riches, they journey to London with plenty of music, action, sparkly costumes and of course, plenty of laughs.

Dates: The show takes place from 1st December 2023 to 6th January 2024. Adult only nights are on 5th, 15th and 22nd December and 5th January. An audio-described performance takes place on 16th December and a BSL performance on 17th December. Relaxed and dementia friendly performances take place on 4th January.

Review: The Stage – this is a review of last year’s production as this year’s performances have not yet commenced.

Courtyard Hereford – Goldilocks

In this year’s Christmas show, Goldilocks is brought to life with original songs, humour and interactive puppetry. Described as an “enchanting retelling” of the fairytale, Snow White learns to overcome all the obstacles life throws at her thanks to friends, singing and plenty of fun. This short production is ideal for children aged 7 and under, lasting just 55 minutes.

Dates: 9th to 24th December 2023.
