It's an adventure you won't want to miss – hook your tickets now!
Running Time: Approx. 2.5 hours including interval
The 1pm performance on Fri 8 December will be a Relaxed Performance*.
The 1pm and 7pm performances on Sat 16 December will be Sign Interpreted and the 1pm performance on Sat 30 December will be Audio Described.
*The Relaxed Performance is suitable for customers who find it difficult to cope with a traditional theatre atmosphere due to having learning difficulties or conditions such as Autism spectrum disorder. This performance may also appeal to parents or schools with children particularly sensitive to loud noises or who dislike the dark. The performance is open to everyone, but there is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and elements of the show will be adapted to suit the setting, for example, the lights will not be fully dimmed, the auditorium doors will remain open and loud noises or ‘scary’ lighting effects may be removed. There will also be alternative activities in the theatre foyers for when children do not wish to stay in the auditorium.
If you require any further information or would like to make a booking for the Relaxed Performance, please telephone our Ticket Office on 01793 524481.

We are thrillled to be welcoming back soap legend Adam Woodyatt to play the role of Captain Hook.

I’m thrilled to be back at the Wyvern this Christmas and can’t wait to get my hook into pantomime once again. Swindon audiences are fantastic, always up for a great show and having a great time, and I can’t wait to hear them boo and hiss my Captain Hook. Adam Woodyatt
