Everyman Theatre announces Tweedy the Clown's panto return

Everyman Theatre has announced that everyone's favourite clown, Tweedy, is set to return to the stage to star in this year's pantomime, Dick Whittington, oh yes he is!

Much to the delight of county children, not to mention adults, Tweedy the Clown will be returning to Everyman Theatre for its anticipated 2017 pantomime, Dick Whittington.

Proving hugely popular with audiences of all ages year after year, Dick Whittington promises another spectacular seasonal show, and is set to delight families from Friday 24 November 2017 to Sunday 7 January 2018.

The story invites audiences to join Dick and his cat as he journeys from Gloucester to London to make his fortune, with seasoned pantomime-goers sure to recognise a few favourite characters.

Priority booking is now open for Dick Whittington, and general booking opens on Saturday 11 March 2017, with tickets sure to be snapped up for the traditional family show.

The Everyman’s chief executive, Geoffrey Rowe said: ‘I am delighted that Tweedy has agreed to be in our next pantomime Dick Whittington. He promises a whole new range of comic stunts and mayhem!

‘The great gift and skill that Tweedy brings to our show is that he entertains both the children and the adults in the audiences equally. He is a true original. Last year’s Jack and the Beanstalk broke all past records so we anticipate another great Christmas and New Year season for all the family.’
