This is a past event and is currently no longer running.


#Birmingham’s own Alison Hammond stars in the UK’s biggest regional panto, alongside Hippodrome favourite Matt Slack back for a 10th year; and star of stage and screen Samantha Womack. They are joined by Doreen Tipton as Doreen the Cow, panto dame extraordinaire Andrew Ryan, Brummie local Alexanda O’Reilly in the title role and West-End performer Billie-Kay as Princess Jill.

Doomed to sell his trusty cow, join Jack’s fight to outwit the evil giant and win riches beyond his wildest dreams. Featuring stunning sets and costumes from The London Palladium, and bundle-loads of laughter, this is the panto you’ve bean waiting for!

Fe-fi-fo-fum, a giant of a panto full of fun!

What’s On Stage ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Jack and the Beanstalk has all the magic ingredients of a successful panto – it looks luscious, is packed full of jokes, has some larger-than-life characters and features impressive special effects. It’s certainly full of beans.”

What’s On Live ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“All in all, it’s fair to say that the Hippodrome is yet again presenting a panto masterpiece – one that’s sure to entertain and delight in equal measure. Be sure to bag yourself a seat to enjoy this real giant of a festive treat!”
