About this event

Once upon a time, on Christmas Eve…

A young Prince is transformed into a wooden Nutcracker doll by the evil Mouse King’s curse. Can a brave little girl break the spell in time for them both to join the magnificent Christmas party in the magical Kingdom of Sweets?

This playful, pocket-sized production is a funny and modern adaptation of Hoffmann’s timeless tale. Combining storytelling, dance, and puppetry with original music, inspired by Tchaikovsky's elegant ballet, The Nutcracker Suite, this seasonal classic is a must-see this Christmas time.

Presented by acclaimed family theatre company WinterWalker, for everyone age 3 and over, this is the perfect Christmas treat the whole family can enjoy together!

You can now book for the accompany workshops The Best Christmas Eve Ever! Workshop or Spoon Soldiers and Evil Mice Workshop
