Tickets are selling fast for Dear Santa. For best availability, have a look at the following performances:

Wed 20 Dec 4:30pm Fri 22 Dec 1:15pm


Santa is determined to deliver the most fantastic Christmas present to Sarah, but he doesn’t get it right straight away! With the help of his cheeky Elf, he finally settles on something ‘perfect’, just in time for Christmas Eve.

From the author of the well-loved children’s book Dear Zoo, Rod Campbell, comes Dear Santa and it’s LIVE! This show is an ideal introduction to theatre for those aged two and over. The Christmas cheer continues, with the opportunity to meet Santa in his grotto after the show, where every child will receive an extra special gift!

Sure to be one Christmas present children and parents alike will never forget. The perfect family show that will be enjoyed by all this festive season.

What is a relaxed performance?

A Relaxed Performance is an adjusted version of the show where sensory aspects such as bright lights and loud noises are reduced, delivered in an environment ‘where it is acceptable to move around, make noise, and behave in non-normative ways’. These performances are an important means for disabled people and people with sensory sensitivities, including but not exclusive to people with learning disabilities, autistic people, and people with other neurodivergent conditions, to experience the arts in an inclusive environment
