BEFORE Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs began thrilling audiences at The Anvil this week, the dwarfs took time out to go shopping in Festival Place.

Watch the hilarious video at or on Anvil Arts’ Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds.

Next year’s pantomime will be Aladdin, from December 12. Jump aboard the magic carpet and follow Aladdin, his hapless brother, and of course his mother Widow Twankey, on a fearless quest to stop the evil Abanazar from ruling the world.

Featuring magnificent scenery, beautiful costumes, lamp-fulls of laughter and an Aladdin’s cave of stupendous surprises, this traditional pantomime is a genie-us way for the whole family to spend a night out together.

Other shows to look forward to in 2019 include BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Seth Lakeman at The Anvil on Friday, 29 March.

He is back touring around the UK with a new band line-up celebrating the release of his ninth studio album The Well Worn Path recorded between charging around the globe with Robert Plant and his band. It’s a return to a no-nonsense, organic classic folk-rock approach with hints of Fairport Convention, Neil Young, Nick Cave and Billy Bragg - plus Lakeman’s trademark foot-stomping, fiddle bow-shredding and soaring vocals.

One of the best tribute bands around, T.Rextasy come to The Anvil on Friday, 5 April. Marc Bolan and T.Rex were up there with the most flamboyant, charismatic stars of the original glam-rock era with Bolan’s special Rock-a-Boogie songs. T.Rextasy have performed around the world for more than 20 years and the band is now accepted as the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to T.Rex.

Just back from her stint in this year’s I’m A Celebrity where she came second, Emily Atack is coming to The Haymarket on April 26 with her debut comedy show Talk Thirty To Me; a live memoir of anecdotes, impressions and tales of an actress in her twenties.

Book now for Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra at The Anvil on May 1. Line-up for next year features Gilson Lavis with guest vocalists Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall.

Always a sell-out at The Anvil, don’t miss your chance to see this phenomenal show.
