Pantomime: Hot porridge with Bruno

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Birmingham Hippodrowm

Tonight - 14 February

With Frank Bruno grinning from the posters there is no need to state that this is Britain's biggest pantomime - if you know what I mean. Like Bruno, the supporting cast (seen with him, above) are comedians in a quirky game-for-a-laugh way. Emily Symons, aka Marilyn in Home And Away will be tossing her blond hair and glamour to the role of Goldilocks. A stroke of genius will be provided by Karl Howman as The Baddie. Something for the ladies will be supplied by Stephen Beckett, the swoonsome PC Jarvis in The Bill.

Hippodrome, Hurst Street, Birmingham B5 4TB (0121 622 7486). Tickets pounds 8, concessions available.
