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 2+ and who believe in Santa. To spread the Christmas cheer; every child will receive a gift from us to you.

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

Relaxed Performances

We are delighted to offer two relaxed performances of Dear Santa on Thu 16 Dec at 10am and 1pm.

Our relaxed performances are designed to create a more calming atmosphere for audience members with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders or a learning disability.

At relaxed performances, we encourage an atmosphere where everyone feels safe and able to react to a show as they wish. Fewer seats are available for sale giving audience members more space to make them feel more comfortable. Attendees are welcome to walk in and out of the auditorium and make noise throughout a production. There is also a calm space near to the auditorium that can be accessed throughout the show. All of our Visitor Services staff have specialist training in advance of a relaxed performance.

We encourage family groups, secondary schools and community organisations who would feel safer and more comfortable in a more relaxed setting.

Tickets £14.50

Tickets can be booked online or please call our Access Line on 0121 689 1060.
