Can the magical Spirit of the Bells put things right and help Dick achieve his heart’s desire?
The King and Queen are delighted to have Rosebud as their baby daughter. But her christening ceremony is rudely interrupted by the Wicked Fairy Carabosse, who gives the baby a gift she won’t forget.

Starring Terry Wogan, Kenneth Connor, Frank Thornton, June Whitfield, Nerys Hughes, Maureen Lipman – and guest starring Jimmy Young – this classic panto was recorded in front of a live audience and first broadcast on BBC.
