Meanwhile, Stamford Pantomime Players will present Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day at Stamford’s Corn Exchange Theatre.

Following on from their hugely successful pantomime Cinderella in 2015 and the brilliant performance of Mother Goose in 2014, the local society, bring to life the story of the beautiful and kindhearted Princess Snow White.

She celebrates her 18th birthday with a party, but the Queen changes the plans and makes it a party for the arrival of the Prince in hope this will win his heart, instead he falls for Snow White.

The Queen is outraged by this and tells the Huntsman to take Snow White deep into the forest and kill her, once there he is unable to do so and tells Snow White to run away. It is then she takes refuge in the forest in the house of Seven Dwarfs.

You can see it on December 27, 28 and 29 at 2pm, December 30 at 2pm and 7pm, December 31 at 2pm and January 1 at 2pm.
