Christmas in Mole Valley

All things Christmas that you need to know and can look forward to in Mole Valley over the festive period is all in one place.

Dorking Halls Christmas Panto: Beauty and the Beast

15 - 29 December - Book

With a star cast, impressive music, energetic dance routines as well as plenty of jokes, slapstick and heaps of audience participation!

Our spellbinding pantomime for Christmas 2018 tells the story of Beauty who longs for romance and adventure, a bad-mannered Prince who is transformed into a Beast to teach him a lesson and a good Fairy who makes both their dreams come true.
