The Anvil is delighted that its pantomime this year is Aladdin.
Making a very welcome return is CBBC favourite Mark Rhodes. Mark, along with his TV partner Sam Nixon, are well-known
for their BAFTA Award-winning show Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind-Up. They are set to present the hugely anticipated return of Crackerjack.
Playing the evil Abanazar is Mark Moraghan, known for his many roles on British television including Owen Davis in Holby City and Tim Richards in Emmerdale.
Returning by popular demand is Chris Pizzey who’ll play Wishee Washee. Chris was a huge success as Muddles in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs last year.
With live music played throughout, the panto features magnificent scenery, sensational special effects, beautiful costumes, lamp- fulls of laughter and an Aladdin’s cave of stupendous surprises.
Aladdin runs from 12 December to 5 January.

The Vyne
Taking time out at this historic family home, you can feel good and support conservation at the same time...
From a bracing winter walk through Morgaston Woods to a gentle lap of The Vyne’s informal gardens, you can build up an appetite ready for a visit to the Brewhouse tea-room. Here, hot drinks and hearty bowls of soup will warm the cockles.
Located in a former coach house, you can tick off the Christmas list in The Vyne’s shop. For a chance to win £10,000, from mid- November, you can take part in The Vyne’s Winter Raffle in aid of its wildflowers.
From 30 Nov – 23 Dec & 26 Dec – 2 Jan, see the ground floor
of the mansion lavishly decorated for a Victorian Christmas. To push the boat out, on select dates in December you can book onto exclusive Christmas candlelit tours. You’ll be able to explore the house after the hubbub of daytime visitors has died down and indulge in a mince pie and mulled wine. All proceeds will go towards The Vyne’s conservation projects.
Tickets £35 per person.
