Beyond the historic allure of the venue, it is the electrifying line-up of shows that keeps audiences coming back. This Autumn, the stage is set to sparkle with performances spanning timeless tales, contemporary triumphs, and toe-tapping musicals.

Kicking off the season is the larger-than-life Peter Pan the Arena Spectacular (26-29 October). In this retelling, expect not just the age-old tale of the boy who never grew up but a presentation packed with "supersize spectacle", as described by Boy George, who plays a stunningly wicked Captain Hook.

Next, the stage transforms into a realm of passion, suspense, and iconic tunes with The Bodyguard (6-11 November). EMILY WILLIAMS and Ayden Callaghan take centre stage, reigniting the embers of a romance that promises to leave audiences on the edge of their seats.

November continues to dazzle with Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (21-25 November). This isn’t just a musical; it's a movement. A modern masterpiece about embracing one’s identity, it’s a must-watch for anyone seeking a story filled with courage, laughter, and unforgettable music.

December brings with it a touch of humour, nostalgia, and a lot of heart with The Full Monty (5-9 December). This isn’t just a story about a group of men; it's a testament to the human spirit, resilience, and the lengths we'll go to for a moment in the spotlight.

Closing the year with an uproarious bang is Shrek the Musical (12-30 December). Rediscover the beloved story of Shrek, Fiona, and the myriad of fairy-tale characters in a musical escapade that guarantees laughter, lessons, and a whole lot of green!
