Dame Nanny McWheeze enjoys some beauty sleep

Posted on 26 September 2018

With preparations now underway for another exciting Belgrade Theatre pantomime, Sleeping Beauty star Dame Nanny McWheeze has been taking some much-needed time out ahead of another hectic festive season.

This week, we booked her in for an exclusive spa session at Coventry’s Windmill Village, where staff member Paola was on hand to help make sure everything went like a dream.


The rest and recuperation got underway with a relaxing massage in one of the building’s elegant spa rooms, followed by some beauty treatment beside the pool.

Afterwards, she headed out into hotel’s beautiful grounds to chill out next to the duck pond in the beautiful sunny weather. There was even time for a quick nap in the shade of a beautiful chestnut tree – after all, it’s not just princesses who need their beauty sleep!


Don’t get caught napping when the nation’s dreamiest panto comes to the Belgrade Theatre this Christmas. Featuring a dragon, a dame and a dozing princess, Sleeping Beauty is guaranteed to bring a bit of magic to your festive celebrations.

When Princess Belle pricks her finger on an enchanted spinning wheel, she’s cursed to fall asleep for 100 years, unless she’s kissed by her one true love. Enter the dashing Prince Valiant, along with Nanny Fanny McWheeze and Muddles, who embark on a brave adventure to save the Princess from her terrible fate. But with the wicked Fairy Carabosse determined to ruin their plans, will our trusty trio be triumphant or is the Princess doomed to a century of snoozing?


Once again written and directed by Iain Lauchlan, Sleeping Beauty will feature the spectacular sets, lavish costumes and incredible performances that make a trip to the Belgrade panto an unmissable Christmas treat for hundreds of families every year.

Sleeping Beauty shows at the Belgrade Theatre Wed 21 Nov – Sat 5 Jan. Tickets are available to book now.
