THE Night Before Christmas is a delightful tale to appeal to the very young or young at heart.

On the night before Christmas Emily stares out of the window, hugs her teddy and waits excitedly for the morning, while in the corner a little mouse called Eddie can't understand why only humans are allowed to celebrate and get presents. So he sets off in search of Father Christmas to find out for himself. Will Eddie get an answer? Will Emily get her wish? And what is that funny-shaped present sitting under the tree?

This a captivating story for three to seven-year-olds that is guaranteed to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. The Big Wooden Horse Theatre Company brings magic, excitement, catchy tunes and plenty of audience participation.

There are also a limited number of dance and movement workshops to accompany the performances so book now if you want a place.
