Anne Bonny’s Lunchtime Pirate Panto

Date: Saturday, Dec 7 2019 - Saturday, Dec 21 2019
Venue: Hen and Chicken

Family panto from the brilliant Show of Strength, in the brand new Chicken Shed at the Hen & Chicken.

Join Buccaneer Belcher (Bristol comedian Angie Belcher) for terrifying tales of Bristol’s pirates, fact and fiction: Blackbeard, Long John Silver, Woodes Rogers, Robinson Crusoe, Jack Rackham, Anne Bonny – and some of the worst pirate jokes you’ll ever hear.

And perched on Angie’s shoulder: Ted the fact-checking Hartcliffe parrot, making sure she gets it right.

Creative Producer Sheila Hannon said, “Show Of Strength created the theatre upstairs at the Hen & Chicken exactly 30 years ago – autumn 1989.  It’s still going strong and now, 30 years later, we’ve got a new show in a new space – at the same place. A great way to celebrate an anniversary.”

Dec 7 / 14 / 21, 1pm & 2pm, 30 mins, ages 7+, £5 for one adult and one child (age 11 and under).  Additional children £3 each. For more info, visit
