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!

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Composer – Wayne Walker-Allen
