Pantomime - Sleeping Beauty
In a magical kingdom Princess Aurora is born. Evil witch Maleficent casts a wicked spell over the baby Princess at her christening party.

Will a handsome Prince be able to find Aurora, break the evil spell and wake her from her slumber?
This is an enchanting story with laughter and music, ideal for young children or a first experience of theatre. Held in the Fulham Palace marquee, a relaxed afternoon where children get close to the action seated on the floor right in front of the stage.

A Victorian Christmas
A festive exploration of the Yuletide our ancestors would have known. The Victorians virtually invented the modern idea of Christmas with crackers, presents, cards and Christmas trees. We explore the origin of these traditions along with some rather more unsavoury customs that have thankfully died out!
Presented by Blast from the Past we invite you to enjoy festive song, a Yuletide Mummers’ Play (forerunner of pantomime) and a Christmas tale of the court of King Arthur featuring damsels in distress, deeds of chivalry and an epic quest!
With high drama, low comedy, delicate melodies and full-throated harmonies – join us in front of the open fire in our atmospheric Great Hall and recapture the simple delights of A Victorian Christmas,
Evening starts at 6pm. Tickets £10. Booking is via The Lyric Hammersmith, telephone 020 8741 6850 or click here
