Sleeping Beauty 👑👑👑

Every year without fail my Mum and Step-Dad have taken Ivy to the Manor Operatic pantomime at the City Hall. This year I decided to go myself and took Ivy along to Sheffield City Hall to see Sleeping Beauty. It’s a lovely Christmas event and hopefully next year Albie will be able to join us at the pantomime. Sheffield has an amazing variety of different pantomimes to choose from.

The Manor Operatic Society put on an annual pantomime and its by far the most kid friendly around with the added bonus that the kids get to go on the stage at the end! Its full of fun, laughter and magic! With plenty of sing-alongs, dance routines and a cast that is great at getting the audience up and involved.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip last night and were engaged throughout it all! Considering it started at 6.15pm and lasted till 8.45pm that’s pretty good going! Ivy loved the good witch, whilst my favourite was definitely Queen Rita and Sue! Ivy had a blast, with a Cheshire Cat grin plastered across her face the whole time! There’s a part in the show all about baking where the characters threw dough into the audience… Ivy not only loved this, the bit of dough she caught even came home with her…

Going to the pantomime is great event especially, if like me, you’re no good at the after Christmas before New Year period! It’s an amazing show and a lovely family event.

If you’re in Sheffield over Christmas get yourself down to City Hall and see Sleeping Beauty!
