For those observant people amongst you, you will have noticed we have snuck in a 6th event to the list.

We wanted to remind you to get your tickets for the show which is coming to Doncaster from the 18th December for a whopping 28 shows! Make sure you get your tickets today to avoid missing out on this brilliant production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sparkling family musical. It is full of unforgettable songs including Go, Go, Go Joseph, Any Dream Will Do and many more. Some shows have already sold out so you really do need to be quick! Read more…
