WITH pantomimes cancelled this year, one Barrow entertainment venue is pulling out the stops to bring festive cheer back to the town.

From December 19-21, The Forum are bringing a 'Christmas Cracker' of a show to the theatre, with some of their favourite panto stars and a reduced audience.

A spokesperson for The Forum said: "Unfortunately, it isn’t possible for us to produce our brilliant family pantomime this year, however, with a lot of consideration and planning we are hoping to bring you a little sparkle this Christmas.

"Following Government guidelines we will be working with our panto producer to bring you a ‘Christmas Cracker’, a spectacular festive show featuring some of our panto stars. We have reduced the capacity of the theatre to just over 100 seats and have put Covid secure measures in place to ensure the safety of customers, staff and performers."
