Santa is determined to deliver the most fantastic Christmas present to Sarah, but he doesn’t get it right straight away! With the help of his cheeky Elf, he finally settles on something ‘perfect’, just in time for Christmas Eve.

From the author of the well-loved children’s book Dear Zoo, Rod Campbell, comes Dear Santa and it’s LIVE! This show is an ideal introduction to theatre for those aged two and over. The Christmas cheer continues, with the opportunity to meet Santa in his grotto after the show, where every child will receive an extra special gift!

It’s sure to be one Christmas present children and parents alike will never forget. The perfect family show that will be enjoyed by all this Festive Season.

A dark green, textured background. In the centre, a digitally collaged image of a woman in 1930s dress, with a short, blunt bob haircut, holding a monocle on a long pearl necklace up to her eye. Blended into her silhouette are photos of 1930s looking jazz musicians, dancers and a female couple touching their foreheads together in an intimate expression.
