Professional pantomime is returning to Fleetwood this year.

Duo Pantomime Productions will be presenting Jack and the Beanstalk at the Marine Hall from December 14 to 30.

Although the professional cast has yet to be finalised, children’s television favourite, Postman Pat, has been confirmed to be making a guest appearance.

One of the highlights of the show will be the appearance of Giant Blunderbore – the largest giant to be seen on any English pantomime stage.

Comedy, lavish sets and extravagant costumes are promised in a production written by Brenda Lefevere with music by Allan Rogers.
