Something for all the family to enjoy

Christmas time means theatre time!
There is one season in the year to treat the family to an unforgettable theatre experience – it’s Christmas!
Theatres are at their best at Christmas as the sound of children and their families fill the building with an excited energy knowing that very soon the show will start, and they will be transported to a magical land of an epic story.
A show that embraces the magic of winter
Theatre makes Christmas time that extra bit special, but it’s even more enchanting when the show itself embraces the most magical time of year.
