Jules’ Coffee Mornings are a place to get creative, to glue stringy balloon sculptures, to learn a waltz and to speak out.
Inspired by the real experiences of many brave women, join six who are now finding their voices. It’s not all just tea and biscuits. So you see, we know what you think of us, we know what we’ve become. That’s why we’re here…we’re trying to work out together how we move on. How we survive.

This production has a trigger warning of domestic abuse and the age guidance is 15 years and over.

ALADDIN – THE RIVERFRONT PANTO 2017-18

From Tuesday 5th December 2017 – Sunday 7th January 2018

A whole host of colourful characters join Aladdin in his story as he struggles to see that good is rewarded and that bad is punished. There’s wicked Abanazar who tells everyone that he is the long lost brother of Widow Twankey’s late departed brother Dafydd. There’s the beautiful Princess Jasmine and her slightly domineering mother, the Empress Double Chinn. And at Suds-U-Like poor old Widow Twankey and Wishee Washee must wash a mountain of smalls for the Royal Wedding.

Full of song, dance, drama and spectacle, this year’s panto at The Riverfront offers two hours in the company of some of the greatest characters in the world of pantomime, fighting the good fight in some of the most exotic places.
