“There’s nothing Santa loves more than starting the countdown to Christmas by opening the windows of his special Christmas calendar.

But when he tries to begin the countdown this year, disaster – the calendar is broken and all the magical goodies inside have gone missing!

Santa needs them to get ready for Christmas, but how is he going to get everything back in time?”

Join Dotty the Elf, Dasher the Reindeer, Jack Frost and Pompom the Penguin in a fun, festive, musical adventure to help fix the Christmas calendar and get Santa’s Christmas Countdown started – plus remember to bring your Christmas letter to post in Santa’s special post box!

Santa’s Christmas Countdown is a 45 minute, interactive family show, particularly suitable for 2-7 year olds. Afterwards the adventure continues as each child gets to meet Father Christmas and receive a specially wrapped present from him – it’s 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!

Sixty years later, in 2006, the original staging was revived, returning Oliver Messel’s wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage. Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score and Marius Petipa’s original choreography beautifully combine with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. This ballet is sure to cast its spell over anyone who sees it.
