The Grand Old Dame Of York Goes On Sale!

We are pleased to announce that The Grand Old Dame Of York will be going on sale at 9am on Thursday 01 March.

Join us and celebrate Berwick Kaler’s 40th year as York’s legendary Dame in The Grand Old Dame of York... a panto like no other! With an original script (well... almost) written by Berwick, this year’s ‘rubbish’ will be a gag-laden, song-packed extravanganza. As well as stunning costumes, jaw dropping sets and choreography to thrill, we know you'll have a grand old time!

For those wanting to guarantee your favourite seats and book on the first day, it's time to fill your flasks, pack your sandwiches and put on your thermals.
