Jack & The Beanstalk
Fee Fi Fo Fum, Derby Arena is in for some fun. The villagers of Dappy Darley on the Derwent are under threat from a ginormous giant! Poor young Jack has his head in the clouds, but when he sells his beloved cow Pat for just a handful of beans he begins a huge adventure which takes him to new heights.
The team behind the 2017 smash hit Beauty and the Beast are back with the BIGGEST panto of them all with marvellous moosic, cow-ntless costumes and an udderly ridiculous dame with giant-sized jokes!
It’s not too early to book 2018’s festive treat - the perfect show for the whole family.


The Dinosaur Who Came For Christmas
Join those festive funsters The Babbling Vagabonds, as they return with more seasonal shenanigans. Expect a Christmas cracker of a tale, crammed with goodies, baddies, and a whole lot of fun, as the team weave the story of a Christmas with an unexpected guest!
With a mix of actors playing various roles, original songs and music, puppets, and brilliant shadow work, the story will come to life as we see what happens when it’s not just Gran who comes to stay.


John Bishop – Winging It
John is back on stage in Derby performing in his own inimitable style. Having just bounced through all the arenas in the land, John is now loading up the trucks for more fun on the road. This latest show is his biggest, best and funniest one yet!
His last tour Supersonic was watched by more than 500,000 people and received huge critical acclaim. Rollercoaster in 2012 was another sell out, and followed the successes of his Sunshine tour in 2011 and the Elvis Has Left The Building show in 2010, for which he was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award.
