This year’s annual alternative pantomime, Over The Top, is a heart-stopping, pun-filled adventure, overflowing with uplifting Christmassy comedy.

The year is 1918 and the troops on the Western Front have had a surprise visit from a fearless group of suffragettes who’ve come to perform a show to lift their spirits. But with bullets whizzing over their heads and howitzers shaking the ground, the troupe get stuck behind enemy lines and a rescue mission is needed. Hashtag #FirstWorldWarProblems.

“Fresh, funny, festive and feminist”
Muddy Stilettos

Belle and a crack team of daredevils soon set off on the perilous journey to rescue them, but will any of them make it back to Blighty for Christmas?

Featuring an all-female cast, this show really is set in No Man’s Land. But fear not, these suffragettes definitely have our vote, and we’ll be rifling through the joke book to make sure the performance doesn’t tank.

If you’re looking for a fun-filled night out away from the kids this Christmas then look no further!
