Burnham-On-Sea’s Princess Theatre hosted a fun-filled traditional pantomime when Burnham District Pantomime Society brought ‘Dick Whittington’ to the stage.

The long-running society’s shows ran from January 25th-28th and received plenty of positive feedback from audiences.

Gavin Holman from Burnham District Pantomime Society told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “This traditional, family pantomime was a lot of fun, and made audiences, both young and young at heart, laugh, boo and hiss!”

In 2022, Burnham District Pantomime Society performed Sleeping Beauty after a break due to the pandemic. The 2021 panto had to be cancelled altogether due to the theatre being closed from January through to May.
