Zorro’s Christmas Adventure is coming to Bewdley Museum. The pantomime is presented by The Little English Theatre Company and your are invited to take to your saddles, strap on your mask and grab a handful of chillies for a roller coaster ride! There promises to be laughs, songs and a cactus full of adventure.
The pantomime is set in Mexico and when Santa crash lands into the scorching sands, it looks like Christmas will be cancelled, until he meets the one and only Zorro!
You can join our masked hero as he; (along with Santa’s helper ‘Zippy Monkey-Toes’); try to thwart the evil El Scorchio’s plan to marry the beautiful Maria Conchita Juanita Tortilla Bonita; and save Christmas.
The show is suitable for all ages and takes place at Bewdley Museum on Sunday 4December from 1pm until 2.15pm. Tickets are £4 each and are available from Bewdley Tourist Information Centre (TIC). They can be booked online at www.wyreforestdc.gov.uk/bookings. They can also be bought in person Monday- Sunday 10am-4.30pm or by calling 0845 607 7819.
The museum and gardens will be open from 10am-4.30pm. It is a great chance to pick up some Christmas gifts from the TIC gift shop or something made exclusively at the museum by the resident artisan group of crafters. The Shambles Cafe will also be open for some festive favourites!
On Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 December it is Grotto Weekend and Father Christmas will be visiting. The museum is open between 10am and 4.30pm and entry is free. There will be live music performances, a selection of craft stalls and the gift shop will be open. Children will get the chance to meet Father Christmas and receive a gift between 12-3pm.

Councillor Juliet Smith, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, Well-being and Housing said:
“We are really looking forward to welcoming The Little English Theatre Company back to Bewdley Museum. This fun, alternative pantomime is just the thing to get all the family into the Christmas spirit. It is well worth visiting the museum and gift shop at the TIC to do a bit of Christmas shopping too. There are lots of lovely unique presents, something for even the hardest person to buy for!“
The museum is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 10am until 4.30pm and the gift shop is open everyday 10am until 4.30pm.
