Gloucester Arts and Cultural Council Inc’s pantomime ‘Babes in the Bush’ is on this weekend at the Gloucester Citizens Centre.

‘Babes in the Bush’ is the traditional tale of two children Pip and Penny, who are abandoned in Barrington bush, mixed with the classic story of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, twisted into a hilarious play for all to enjoy.

The family-friendly show opens Friday, November 24 from 7pm, with a performance on Saturday, November 25 from 7pm and a matinee on Sunday, November 26 from 1pm.

You can bring your own nibbles and drinks, however a few homemade goodies will also be available to purchase. 

Tickets are $20 (non-GACCI members), $15 (GACCI members) and $10 (17 years and under), available from Gloucester Health Foods, by phoning 0425 203 877 or at the door.
