Families in Barrow can put a new date in their diaries with the perfect half term entertainment coming to town.

The Forum will be playing host to their own version of Beauty and the Beast for their annual Easter pantomime.

Performances will take place from Friday, April 5 to Monday, April 8, with tickets costing £14 or £12 for concessions.

The synopsis says: "Will Belle be able to love the beast for whom he is on the inside and not his beastly exterior or will evil Gaston win the heart of our beauty?

"With the help of Polly de le Pott and Louis de le Pott, the finest of all banquets is prepared for Belle and the Beast, but true love must prevail before the last rose petal falls, or Prince Carl will remain a beast forever!"
