World Premiere Pantomime  comes to Thornbury

Award winning Thornbury Musical Theatre Group is proud to bring to you the world premiere of a brand new pantomime with its central themes based in the realms of the Arthurian legend.  

‘King Arthur The Pantomime’ will be performed at the Armstrong Hall in Thornbury from Wednesday 20th to Saturday 23rd February with two matinées.

Written by our very own Richard Prior and directed by Mark Collins, ‘King Arthur The Pantomime’ is a traditional family pantomime full of fun and frolics, audience participation, hilarious comedy, catchy music, drama and romance.  It is sure to be a family favourite!

Arthur, a lowly squire in the court of King Pellinore, longs for the love of the beautiful Lady Guinevere, and Merlin, the time travelling wizard, aims to enlighten us with his edification and delights of the modern worlds, whilst arming Arthur with the skills to defeat all evil. Arthur’s love for Guinevere takes him on a journey fraught with danger, bringing him into the path of the villainous Mordred and his wicked mother Morgan Le Fey (the wicked witch). 

Performances are 7.30 pm nightly and matinées at 2.30 pm on the Friday and Saturday.  Tickets are bookable online at with no booking fee.  Adults £12.50, Senior Citizens £11.50 and Children £10.50.  Family tickets £40.  For enquiries call Angie at the Box Office on 07516 270140.
