The Tales from the Shed team can’t wait to celebrate Christmas 2021 with their new, amazingly festive show, Christmas Tales! 

We all need a huge sprinkling of magic this 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 merry at this most wonderful time of the year! 

Seen the show? Let us know what you thought!


Audience Feedback from our 2019 performances

'Just brilliant. My 2.5 year old enjoyed every second and has been talking about it and singing the songs all weekend. Was so lovely for me to watch her enjoying it so much.'

'Loved it!'

'Amazing and professional but really friendly and inclusive.'

'My Son enjoyed everything! The cast, story line, dancing, singing, music, the costumes and even the lights were all amazingly perfect. We cannot wait to see another show at the Chickenshed Theatre. What an amazing performance. Well done every one and thank you all so much.'

'Festive colourful fun show. Brilliant!'

'Would recommend others to watch the show. As I work and look after children with special needs, I feel that Chickenshed is suitable and an amazing place to go.'
