A town's pantomime has been delayed by more than a month after the reopening of a Grade II listed entertainment venue was put back.
Tamworth Assembly Rooms closed in February 2016 so the building could be regenerated and it was due to reopen at the end of the month.
But the borough council says extra works are needed to safely finish off the work and it can't reopen until the new year.
As a result, most of the scheduled shows have been put back to new dates, including this year’s performance of Aladdin which the council says makes up most of the ticket sales.
Instead of over 10 days from 14 December, the show's now due to take place over eight days from 18 January, with the council offering the new dates or a full refund.
