COMIC Bobby Davro and television star Denise Welch star in Cinderella, this year’s Christmas pantomime at Northampton’s Royal and Derngate from Friday 7 December to Sunday January 6.

Bobby returns to the theatre by popular demand following the rapturous reception for his performance in last year’s panto.

Presenter and Coronation Street actress Denise Welch will sprinkle her magic as the Fairy Godmother to Bobby’s Buttons.

The story of Cinderella wouldn’t be complete without two Ugly Sisters – and they don’t come any uglier than Darren Southworth and Andy Brady, who will be delighting audiences with their outrageous antics.

The actress revealed that she had taken some persuading to do pantomime this year, but that it was the promise of a small part for her 11-year-old son Louis that prompted her to agree, as it means she wouldn’t have to spend the Christmas period without him.

Tickets, priced from £16 to £24, can be booked on 01604 624811 or online at
