Ditch the panto in favour of something a little quirkier this Christmas... The Hunt For The Smoking Caterpillar will immerse you in a twisted re-telling of Lewis Carroll's classic, with bonkers storylines and hilarious actors adding to thrill of it all. 

Get your theatre fix this season at Islington's well-loved Rosemary Branch pub. Sip on their tasty food and drink and enjoy an array of fabulous performances and shows in their award-winning theatre located upstairs.
