Mark Tennant, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: “There is nothing better than a well-loved pantomime to get the family together at Christmas. We’re excited to be hosting this for the first time at Bracknell Leisure Centre and we’re sure that it will be an evening filled with excitement and laughter.”

The English fairytale follows the story of Jack, who is a poor boy and tries to make money for his mum by selling their dairy cow.

However, Jack meets a bean dealer who offers magic beans in exchange for the cow and Jack makes the trade.

After this, the magic begins and the beans grow into a gigantic beanstalk. Jack climbs it and what happens next is a mystery.
