Let us tell you a story about Kings and Queens,
About powerful people with powerful dreams;
Tales of wartime and peacetime, of plots and of thrones,
All mixed with some jokes (which might prompt a few groans).
We’re your curate, your tour guide, your host, we’re your Bard,
Here to sum up a century – well, it can’t be that hard.
So join us and learn some historical details
In this witty retelling of old Tudor Tales…
Discover the story of England’s most (in)famous dynasty in this hilarious whistle-stop sketch show full of brilliant gags, fascinating facts, and a lot of wigs…
From the tale of the day a dog saved the King of England from kidnap, to an alarming demonstration of what happened when the Queen came to stay at your house, this family-friendly show sheds new light on the brilliant (and bonkers) monarchs who defined a nation.

It's time to get lost in the forest as the Queens Park Pantomime returns for 2021 with a brand new adaptation of a classic fairytale.
Once upon a time, in a far-away land, a wicked witch put a curse upon a new-born princess.
The baby's father, King Trevelyan, has spent eighteen years trying to prevent the prophecy from coming to pass, but the evil Belladonna has a plan to ensure his daughter's fate remains sealed...
Now that Princess Elspeth is no longer a child, she's determined to make her way in the world with her childhood sweetheart. But the course of true love never did run smooth.
Here there be dragons...
From the team who brought you 'Beauty and the Beast', this year’s show is packed full of rib-tickling slapstick routines, amazing dances and songs, and beautiful handmade sets, costumes, props and puppets from the artists and makers of Queens Park Arts Centre.
The show once again features amazing dance routines choreographed and performed by the Susan Diane School of Dance.
Show Run-time (incl. interval): 2hrs

Alight here for hilarity – The Unbound Sketchbook are back on the road with a brand-new sheath of pages from their mighty book of sketches.
Witness what happens when your interior monologue goes rogue, sit in on a disastrous ‘Positivity in the Workplace’ seminar, and find out why you really should Mind the Gap on the London Underground…
Along the way there’ll be a trip to a Creation Focus Group, an unsettling look at what happens when the rules of fishing are applied to land animals, and a toe-tapping job interview with a Barbershop Quartet.
Blending witty wordplay with rib-tickling physical comedy and mirthful music, The Unbound Sketchbook is the perfect evening out for comedy fans.
