Raymond Briggs' Father Christmas at West Yorkshire Playhouse
6 December 2013 - 11 January 2014
Bloomin' Christmas! Father Christmas awakes from a dream of summer sun only to realise that it's bloomin' Christmas Eve and the start of his longest night of the year. As he gathers the reindeer and prepares his sleigh, Father Christmas begins the long journey into the snowy night to deliver presents to sleeping children all over the world. But things don't run smoothly and he soon encounters soot covered chimneys and treacherous weather conditions, meanwhile plenty of mischief is being had by his cheeky pets, Cat and Dog.
Beloved by generations, Briggs' magical story is brought vividly to life 40 years after it was first published, using song, live music and playful puppetry. Look out for surprises at every turn in this stunningly visual show with hidden hatches, secret doors and a truly magical set.
Produced by West Yorkshire Playhouse, Lyric Hammersmith and Pins and Needles. Make sure you don't miss this warm and funny show, packed full of giggles for 2 to 6 years and their families.
Tickets from £9.50 to £12.50
