Christmas Tales 'Live On Stage'

Tickets from £8 | Ages 0-7yrs | Running Time 50 mins 


Having spent just a little more time than usual at home this year, the Tales Team couldn't wait to get back in the theatre, and what better way to celebrate than with their amazingly festive show, Christmas Tales!

If ever there were a year for a huge sprinkling of magic, this is the year. So make way for this colourful, energetic and vibrant show - as we bring the fun and giggles back to our biggest and brightest stage, the Rayne Theatre.

With puppets, singing, dancing and some larger-than-life characters, Christmas Tales is guaranteed to entertain the very youngest of audience (and grown-ups too!), leaving everyone happy and joyful at this most wonderful time of the year! Signing will also be included within the performance.

Due to social distancing measures, there will be reduced ticket numbers for performances this year - so make sure to book early!

Audience Feedback from our 2019 performances

'The performance, music and dancing, all very entertaining and engaging for adults as well as young children. My son is 2 years and 4 months and loved dancing along with the performance and the characters which is lovely to see.'

'The cast were brilliant and had my son engrossed.'

'It was a warm, friendly performance and everyone really enjoyed themselves off and on stage.'

'An energy-filled performance as always, with maximum audience participation.'

'Entertaining and interactive for children with some adult laughs also thrown in.'

'Very interactive with the audience, kept all 3 of my children entertained, even the baby.'

'The venue was great, accessible, everyone could see really well. The energy was terrific and the humour. Nice that it was interactive for the kids (and adults too!).'

'Really lovely show from start to finish. We have been to many shows at the Chickenshed’s Theatre before and they never disappoint. The performers are really passionate about what they do and it’s reflected in their performances.'
