The countdown is on to this year's 'giant' pantomime at Kilmarnock's Palace Theatre. 

Jack and the Beanstalk kicks off on Friday, November 24, and will run through the festive period until Friday December 29. 

Ticket prices for the show range from £15.50 to £24.50 depending on the date and time of each performance. 

A relaxed performance will take place on Saturday, December 9 at 10.30am and a signed performance for people with hearing impairments who know BSL is on Thursday, December 7 at 6.30pm.​

The relaxed pantomime will be stripped of loud bangs, smoke and some of the constraints that go hand in hand with a normal theatre setting, like being confined to your seat. The theatre lights will be up too.

An East Ayrshire Leisure spokesperson said: "The Trots are so poor they don’t have a bean to their name, and what's more there is a giant terrifying the village.

"Come and see if Jack can defeat the giant, win the heart of the girl he loves and turn the Trots’ fortunes around.

"Once again The Palace Theatre will have all the ingredients for a perfect family panto, with a dastardly villain, a hapless comic and a hilarious panto dame, as well as fabulous musical numbers and bags of slapstick fun.

"Book your tickets now for this ‘moo-vellous’ family friendly panto which will leave everyone aged four to 104 feeling full of ‘beans’!"
