Bramley Pantomime keeps it in the family with Jack and the Beanstalk

By Linda Birch

Bramley Panto is back by popular demand at Leeds West Academy theatre after the annual event successfully moved there last year following the closure of St Margaret’s Church in Bramley. 

The company have many happy memories of the years spent at St Margaret’s but feel fortunate to now have the opportunity to make new memories at Leeds West Academy.

There is a long history of pantomime in Bramley and last year Bramley Parish Theatre Players celebrated 100 years at a special dinner dance. It was lovely for the players celebrate with so many people who have supported the group over the last fifty or sixty years.

Current chair, Edward Turner, was given a special award for his long service and commitment to the community theatre group. Continuing the family tradition across three generations are his daughter Emma Smith, and grandchildren Joe and Holly, who are all involved in the current production.

This year they are performing Jack & the Beanstalk. Come and watch hero, Jack, as he dares to climb the beanstalk to save his princess. Will he get the better of the giant and live to tell the tale? Join in the fun as Dame Dotty Dimple and Simple Simon get into a few scrapes to save their cottage and of course, their precious cow, Buttermilk. 

The show promises great entertainment for the whole family!

The performances are during the Leeds schools’ February’s half term: Thursday 16 and Friday 17 Feb at 7pm, and Saturday 18 at 1.15pm and 5.30pm. To book tickets online go to or call 07368 986 969.
