Dick Whittington Pantomime 7 - 31 Dec At Poole Lighthouse Theatre

Join us on a family pantomime adventure with Dick Whittington and his acrobatic cat as they journey from Poole to Olde London Town then across the sea seeking fame and fortune. After ‘Cinderella’ last year, prepare for an even bigger ‘wow’ with spectacular new scenery, sparkling costumes and special effects.  Meet the magical Fairy Bow Bells and the hilarious Dame Dolly Donuts.   Boo, cheer, laugh, sing along and don’t let King Rat become Lord Mayor!

Dick Whittington stars popular children’s TV presenter Chris Jarvis who is no stranger to local audiences. In addition to playing the role of Dick Whittington he directs and writes the pantomime with actor Peter Duncan. This is the third year running that Duncan Reeves Productions has co-produced the Poole panto with Lighthouse, following the success of their productions of Aladdin and Cinderella.

Dorset Police - Have Fun & Stay Safe This Halloween

Anti-social behaviour over the Halloween period has been declining since 2014 in the county and Dorset Police is asking the public to help keep these statistics down. 
Please be respectful to those who don't want to participate. If homes are displaying 'No trick or treating' signs, or residents ask you to move on, please do so politely. 

There are members of our communities who might find this time of year intimidating. Vulnerable people may be distressed if they are disturbed by people they do not know, particularly late at night. 

You can report anti-social to the police via the Do It Online function. Alternatively you can email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk  or call 101. If a crime is in progress or life is in danger, always call 999.
