Widow Twankey's Wardrobe Laid Bare

Posted on 20 June 2014

It may only be June but here at the Belgrade Theatre, the panto preparations are already under way!

This Christmas the Belgrade Theatre welcomes Coventry’s panto legend Iain Lauchlan back to the Main Stage to play the Dame in its annual pantomime, Aladdin, which is running on the Main Stage from Weds 26 Nov 2014 – Sat 10 Jan 2015. In countdown to this year’s festive offering, we caught up with Coventry’s legendary panto Dame from behind-the-scenes of his very first costume fitting of the season down at the theatre’s workshops in Red Lane!

Take a look at the Images and Video Gallery on the right to see some of the amazing costumes featuring in this year’s pantomime including an exclusive sneak peek at some of Widow Twankey’s most outrageous outfits!

Aladdin will feature more spectacular scenery, incredible costumes, hilarious slapstick and audience participation all with a liberal sprinkling of glitter to add a touch of sparkle to everyone’s festive season both young and old.

Aladdin plays on the Belgrade Main Stage from Weds 26 Nov 2014 – Sat 10 Jan 2015. For tickets, call the Box Office on 024 7655 3055 or visit where tickets are cheaper.
