Holy Mackerel

Showing from 2nd Dec - 9th Jan

Watch out for another wonderfully alternative Christmas show. In the sleepy Cornish port of Newlyn, there's something troubling afoot. In Victorian times East Anglian seafarers descended on the town with their fancy pants ways. The result...only a flipping fish riot! Only one person can save the day. Holy Mackerel, it's Norman in his nightshirt blundering through calamity after disaster in this hysterical history....with music, songs and fishticuffs a plenty!

Prices:£10 to £18 

With a variety of pantomimes over the festive season, it’s sure to be a very exciting Christmas 2015 in Ipswich .
