The Lion Who Came For Christmas


Friday 1 to Sunday 24 December 2017

About this event

This interactive show is aimed at 3 to 6 year olds and runs for 50 minutes.

***It’s the week before Christmas, and little Peter is helping his mother in the family post office. He spent all his pocket money on a soft toy lion for his sister and it should be arriving any day now.

But as Peter and his mother sort through the packages, it becomes apparent that something is very wrong. Lots of the Christmas parcels have strange labels, and some are downright peculiar. When Peter’s package finally arrives, it’s not the soft toy he ordered - but a real live lion cub with big soft golden paws and a fondness for peppermints! What is going on? Is something – or someone – trying to stop Christmas?

Peter and his friends know they must act, but can they make it in time? Join them as they journey through fantastical lands to the North Pole on a mission to save Christmas forever!***
