Since winning Britain’s Got Talent over 15 years ago under the leadership of founder, choreographer, and creative director Ashley Banjo, Diversity has achieved unprecedented success in the dance world. The group, which has sold over half a million tickets across ten sell-out UK tours, is recognised for its significant contributions to dance, with Ashley Banjo receiving an MBE in the 2022 New Years Honours List. Diversity’s accomplishments include performing for Her Majesty The Queen at her Platinum Jubilee concert.

Also appearing in the show are West End performers Matt Rixon as the hilarious Dame Trot, Jacqueline Hughes as the magical Spirit of the Beans and Lauren Hampton as the loveable Princess Jill.

Jack and the Beanstalk promises to be a visual spectacle, featuring the stunning set and costumes from The London Palladium production, which earned Mark Walters an Olivier Award nomination for Set Design. The pantomime will feature sensational song and dance numbers, fantastic special effects, and audience participation, creating a magical experience for all ages.

The story follows Jack on his journey to cloudland, where he battles to defeat an evil giant and win fortune and love. This family-friendly production is expected to be a highlight of the theatrical season.
