Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4jNFFLg5C4


“Christmas is the busiest time of year at the North Pole, when Father Christmas makes presents to deliver across the whole world… and when everyone gets ready for Santa’s Christmas Party!


But this year somebody has been up to mischief…


Dotty the Elf’s decorations have gone missing, Dasher the Reindeer’s party games are broken, and what's happened to Pompom the Penguin’s Christmas music?


It looks as though somebody wants to stop Santa’s Christmas Party - and that someone is Jack Frost!


Help get Santa’s Christmas Party back on track in an adventure full of fun, festive songs and party games. Then meet Santa at his home in the North Pole, where every child will receive a special present from him, after the most Christmassy Christmas show ever – HO-HO-HO!


Songs include festive favourites

Jingle Bells, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, The Twelve Days Of Christmas, We Wish You A Merry Christmas and more!”


Santa’s Christmas Party is a 45 minute, interactive family show, particularly suitable for 2-7 year olds, after which the adventure continues as each child gets the chance to receive a special present from Father Christmas in our popular meet, greet and treat!


After the show there will be some light refreshments served along with some more music and a time for dancing and good cheer!


"The show delivered all that it promised - magical, interactive, song-filled, festive fun; it was great!" - Mums In The Know on Santa's Christmas Cracker


"Full of wonder and delight - as my children walked away they whispered in my ear,"That was the real Santa!" - Families North Hampshire on Santa's Christmas Cracker
