The Scouse Dick Whittington
  • UK Regional & Tours

The World famous, record breaking, eye popping, lung busting, side splitting, knee trembling Royal Court Christmas show is back! We've got the live band, we've got the great gags and we've got some pretty rude words so leave the kids at home and get down here for the best night of the year. Dick was lying in his bed when a scary hairy fairy came to him in a dream. If he were to go to London then he would become Lord Mayor! How brill is that? But hang on... London's 212 miles away and it's full of divvies. Why not become Lord Mayor of Liverpool instead! It's a lot nearer. As he gets closer to town he runs into a bunch of proper rats who want to stop him. Ably supported by his cat, Galore, he needs to overcome all odds and beat King Rat to get his hands on that big, gold chain. As long as he believes then nothing can stop him. Except possibly a bit of plague. Written by Kevin Fearon, Directed by Stephen Fletcher and with Musical Direction from Howard Gray the team that brought you The Scouse Cinderella, The Scouse Snow White and The Scouse Jack & The Beanstalk are promising the best Christmas show yet! Come and join us for the real start of Christmas with a show that will make you laugh so much that eggnog will come out of your nose. It's a sell out every year so book soon for the best seats!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
