Where's Berwick?

Where’s Berwick? Find the Grand Old Dame of York and win tickets to last night of the panto!

The name of the game is Find the Dame.

From 13 December to 2 February 2019 you’ll can see legendary pantomime star Berwick Kaler on stage at York Theatre Royal celebrating his 40th anniversary as Dame in The Grand Old Dame of York.

But he’s not the only Berwick in town. There are 40 – yes, 40 - Berwicks scattered around York. Not the flesh-and-blood Berwick but his Dame-like image on vinyls placed in shop and office windows around York city centre.

Vinyl number 1 is at York Theatre Royal along with a life size cardboard cutout of the legendary Dame. You can pick up an entry form at the theatre or download it here.

Your mission is simple: find the 40 Berwicks. The winner will receive a pair of tickets to the legendary Dame’s last ever panto performance on 02 February at 7.30pm.

The last night of the panto is already a sellout with tickets allocated by ballot, so this is a rare chance to get hold of tickets for what will be Berwick Kaler’s last ever show as Dame as he’s bowing out after 40 years.

Deadline for the Where’s Berwick competition is Saturday 19 January. No duplicate entries. No cash exchanges. Winner will be selected at random and contacted using the number supplied on the entry form.
