Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas
A Lyric Hammersmith & Pins and Needles production
Last year Waterside presented the sensational show Raymond Briggs’ The Bear. This year the same company return with another Raymond Briggs favourite: Father Christmas.
Step inside the bloomin’ brilliant world of Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas this winter at Waterside.
Children of all ages will delight in Briggs’ grumpy but loveable Father Christmas as he gets ready for his busiest day of the year: Christmas Eve. Watch as he prepares his Christmas deliveries, feeds his reindeer and finally takes flight into the snowy night. But things don’t run smoothly and he soon encounters soot-covered chimneys to squeeze through and treacherous weather conditions, all while plenty of mischief is had by his cheeky pets, Cat and Dog.
With plenty of live music, songs and playful puppetry, this critically acclaimed adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ much loved book is a delightful festive treat for children to enjoy.
