Councillor Jane March, cabinet member for culture, leisure and economic development said: "I am very pleased that we’re able to share this good news.

The council announced today that this year's pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will not go ahead, because of concerns over social distancing.

As well as a refund, the theatre is offering each person who booked the panto, a free family ticket for the ice rink.

The ice rink is expected to open on Saturday 14 November with tickets on sale in September through the Assembly Hall Theatre’s website.
