He’s behiiiind yoouu! Come along to the Conservatoire to explore the great British tradition of the pantomime!

There will be a sing song or two, gags a plenty, and lots to learn... and Christmas is officially on its way! (Oh no it isn’t!) (OH YES IT IS!) Bring a packed lunch for day long courses – please no nuts!
