This is a past event and is currently no longer running.


Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s beloved Tales from Acorn Wood stories are brought to life on stage for the first time in an enchanting lift-the-flap experience.

Poor old Fox has lost his socks! Are they in the kitchen or inside the clock? And Rat-a-tat-tat! Who’s that keeping tired Rabbit awake? You can also join in with Pig and Hen’s game of hide-and-seek and discover the special surprise Postman Bear is planning for his friends.

This special Christmas show also features Squirrel’s Snowman – can you help her find everything she needs to build a snowman?

Packed full of toe-tapping songs, puppetry, and all the friends from Acorn Wood, this beautiful show from the team that brought you Dear Zoo Live and Dear Santa promises to be the perfect festive treat for children of all ages.

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
