A Bolton theatre will be putting on a traditional pantomime this Christmas.

Bolton Little Theatre will be holding Dick Whittington, by Peter Denyer, in the run-up to Christmas this year.

The panto follows the titular Dick Whittington, who, upon hearing that the streets are paved with gold, sets off to London in search of fame, fortune, adventure and true love.

But the evil King Rat and his ratlings will let nothing stand in the way of world domination.

It will be showing from 7pm on December 7, 8, 9, 15 and 16. There will also be matinees on December 9 at 2pm, December 10 at 11am and 3pm, December 16 at 2pm and December 17 at 11am and 3pm.
