THE Belgrade Theatre welcomes Coventry’s panto legend Iain Lauchlan back to play the Dame in this year’s magical pantomime Sleeping Beauty.

Iain plays Nurse Nanny Nora in the classic fairytale which runs from November 28 to January 5.

Throughout the show Nurse Nanny Nora, Josh the Jester and the dashing Prince Valiant join forces to battle with dragons and time machines to ensure the Prince is ready to wake the sleeping Princess on time.

As ever, the tale will be told in the very best Belgrade panto tradition with elaborate and beautifully designed stage sets, incredible costumes and a helping hand from the audience.

Iain holds legendary status in Coventry following 12 unforgettable years as Dame in Belgrade pantomimes between 1988 and 1999.

He was last seen on the Belgrade stage in 2007 when he made a spectacular, one off return to play the Dame in Aladdin to celebrate the reopening of the theatre after its £14m redevelopment.

Tickets are available now from the box office on 024 7655 3055 priced from £13.25 to £21.75 or via where cheaper tickets are available. Concessions and family tickets are also available.

We have a family ticket - valid for two adults and two children - to giveaway to the opening night of Sleeping Beauty to giveaway.
