The champagne corks of Christmas and the New Year might have gone for a final pop but Leighton Buzzard Drama Group aims to bring back a little bit of the festive period with their pantomime.

Members of the group are taking a trip to old Peking when they stage Aladdin with various performances from Thursday to Saturday, January 11-27.

The traditional pantomime follows the title character, Wishee Washee and Widow Twankey on a magical adventure.

Aladdin aims to realise his dreams of marrying the beautiful Princess Jasmine.

The show will be packed fill of singalong tunes, beautiful costumes and plenty of pantomime mischief for the entire family.
