Dick Whittington Pantomime - At The Oldham Coliseum Theatre

The North West's favourite pantomime is packed with laugh-out-loud gags, thigh slapping songs, and a generous helping of "it's behind you's"! OH YES IT IS.

Poor young lad Dick Whittington lives in the country but wants a life of adventure. He journeys to seek his fame and fortune in London with just his rat-catching cat as his only friend. Are the city's streets paved with gold? Will his path to the happily-ever-after be an easy one?

Dick Whittington has fabulous costumes, glitz and glamour, silliness and slapstick and hit songs to sing along to. This pantomime appeals to ALL the family, from kids to not-so-grown-up grown-ups. A great way to celebrate Christmas with friends and family.

*Please note we only have 300 seats for this show so booking early is to be recommended*

There is plenty of parking on Bradshaw Street 100 yards away
