Families can enjoy a spot of open-air entertainment as a pop-up panto comes to the Bombed Out Church this summer.

IK Productions are bringing Treasure Island to St Luke's Church in the city centre for May half term.

The show is a fast-paced, multi-rolling, comedy adaptation of the classic Robert Louis Stevenson book.

The spectacularly silly swashbuckling adventure tells the tale of Jim and his crew as they brave the high seas as he sets out on a summer panto quest to find buried gold, encountering pirates a-plenty in this folk-inspired outdoor performance.

The delightfully daft tale is for all ages and tickets are on sale now for all performances.

A family-friendly version of the show will be performed with a grown-up evening performance for the more mature seaman, which contains strong language, innuendo and scenes of a sexual nature - not suitable for under 14s.

IKP’s managing director, Joe Hackett, said: "After the year we've all had, we're really keen to get back out on the road and bring some fun and laughter to families around the country.

"This pop-up panto is a great way for families, friends and communities to come together and have a night out and a laugh again in a safe and socially distanced way.
