The streets of Hackney will be paved with gold this Christmas as "Dick Whittington" comes to the Empire.
Join Dick and his cat on their quest to find fame and fortune as the Mayor of London. This traditional Christmas panto is filled with colourful characters, plenty of dancing and music and some great knockabout comedy.
The historic Hackney Empire was built at the turn of the 20th-century. The Grade II listed building has seen everyone from Charlie Chaplin and WC Fields, to Stan Laurel and Marie Lloyd, and a recent refit has seen it return to its former glory.
Guest – “I was lucky enough to see Dick Whittington at the Hackney Empire at the first night.
Last time I saw this show was more years ago than I care to admit and then the London skyline was typified by Big Ben and red buses! Now its… more”
