If you live in West Yorkshire and haven’t heard of, or visited the Rainbow Factory then I urge you to add it to your list of places to visit with your little ones. Based in Farsley, it’s just 15 minutes from both Bradford or Leeds city centres or around 25 minutes from Harrogate. The Rainbow Factory is a storytelling wonderland, which has the objective of inspiring a new generation with a love of reading; which is perfect for us as a family and our love of books! The business was initiated as a Social Enterprise (massive tick from me!) as a family orientated world of adventure and fun. It’s affordable, different and also, rather lovely.
Usually, the place is focused on bringing children’s stories to life through music & craft but this December, there is also a very special pantomime being performed. Suitable for all the family, even babes in arms. Introducing, ‘Cinderella’s Christmas Wish’ the show is a heart-warming original production, written by and starring the very talented and very clever Rainbow Factory Theatre performers. It’s a magical re-imagining of a fairy tale favourite, featuring some familiar characters and some you never even knew existed!
The pantomime features music, live action and performing puppets, this sparkling festive treat will leave you smiling long after the clock has struck midnight. The show is not only guaranteed to leave you bursting with fun and laughter but also just as importantly, it won’t leave your purse empty! At just £6 per person (only pay for children over 12 months upwards) it’s much cheaper than some of the big theatre productions and also, more intimate and special perhaps too.
Cinderella’s Christmas Wish runs at the Rainbow Factory from December 8th to December 30th so there is plenty of time to grab your tickets online or via calling the Rainbow Factory directly (See below!)
Don’t miss this enchanting show, we absolutely cannot wait!
