Santa’s Christmas Cracker

The show where every child gets a present from Santa

This show runs from Friday 20 – Tuesday 24 December.
Friday 20 Dec: 1pm & 4pm | Saturday 21 Dec: 11am, 2pm & 4pm | Sunday 22 Dec: 11am, 2pm & 4pm | Monday 23 Dec: 11am & 2pm  | Tuesday 24 Dec: 10am

It really is the most wonderful time of the year, so it’s no surprise that everyone at the North Pole is super-excited as Christmas draws near.  Father Christmas is busy making toys, Dotty the Elf is decorating the Christmas tree and Dasher the Reindeer is getting presents onto his sleigh – but then they meet a lost penguin who has never even heard of Christmas…

Impossible! But how to teach him all about Christmas?  Dare they open the door marked For Christmas Emergencies Only?  And can you help unleash the magic of Christmas by pulling one of Santa’s Christmas Crackers?”

Join Father Christmas and friends for a fun, festive, musical adventure to discover the wonder of Christmas – you may even get to pull a cracker with Dotty the Elf!  After the show, each child gets to meet Father Christmas and receive a wrapped present from him – it’s the most Christmassy Christmas show ever – ho ho ho!

“Eyes lit up full of wonder and joy – as my children walked away from receiving their gift they whispered, “That was the real Santa!”
