The festive season lasts even longer at the Empire!

With the dawn of a new year, a local theatre is reminding families that festive panto fun continues for another week.

The Empire Theatre in Ewood, Blackburn has already enjoyed one of its biggest pantomime runs ever with Sinbad, with many shows sold out. Now shows are set to continue right through until Saturday 7th January 2017.

The spectacular pantomime, which is produced by Pendle Productions, sees all the regular pantomime favourites of music, dance, laughs and goodies and baddies galore. Audiences who have already enjoyed the show have also been treated to spectacular effects including a flying mermaid right over the heads of the audience.

The pantomime has already received 5 star reviews from audiences.

Susan Sharples from Blackburn said, “I saw this panto and was truly delighted by the standard. The effort that has been expended is wonderful and the result is fantastic. I’ve never enjoyed a panto so much.”

Another happy audience member, Jennifer Kelly from Bolton said, “Watched Sinbad yesterday with five children aged from three to seven. They, and my dad and I, loved it! Well done.”
