Customs House Marketing Manager, Deniece Wanley, said “It’s important for us to work with local companies and we are delighted to be working with Urban River on this year’s show. After fantastically promoting Little Red Riding Hood last year, it was an easy decision for us to engage with the Urban River team again”.

Billed as ‘the little panto, with the big heart’, this year’s production of Alice in Wonderland has been met with some fantastic reviews. “2016 is a big year for the Customs House” said Deniece. “We’ve got some brilliant shows coming to South Shields next year and getting the message out that people don’t have to leave South Tyneside to see fantastic entertainment is key to that”.
