Howden Park Centre and Martin and Martin Theatre company present a Martin McCormick pantomime - Bairns in the Wood!

If you go down to the woods today you're sure of big surprise!  That's right panto pals; introducing identical twins Brodie and Bryony! Brodie has the looks (or at least he thinks he does) and Bryony has the... well she's not got much going for her. In fact, she's a totally fearty!  Oh pals, that's not ideal if you are lost in the deep dark scary woods, is it? 'Oh no it isn't', I hear you cry.

Can their gargeous Mammy, Dame Marge Meringue, find her poor wee lost bairns?  What strange creatures will they meet on their adventure?  And what is evil Rowan Reekie, Bake-Off Winner 2014, doing in town?

To find out all the answers join us at Howden Park Centre once again for another Christmas cracker of a show! Brought to you by the same team that created the hit panto, Cinderella.
