Christmas Storytelling


This event has been and gone.

A Clare Castle Christmas Tale

Travel back to the 1860's for a hilarious and heart-warming yuletide tale. Jack the jolly engineer tells the magical story of a cold Christmas Eve at the Clare Castle railway, a special guest with a big white beard, a crash-landing, runaway reindeer and a steam-powered race against the clock to make some very important deliveries!

Please note that babies on laps (up to 1 year old) do not need tickets.
Festive fun for children of all ages featuring songs and audience interaction.


The Pantaloons

The Pantaloons appearing at this event

The Pantaloons are a young and dynamic theatre company comprising graduates of Kent University. They aim to recapture an aspect of drama which modern naturalistic theatre has lost: the riotous energy of the clown. Tapping into this rich vein of anarchic humour can have a strangely moving and uplifting effect and it also reminds us that we are all simply participants in a game of make-believe. Their productions are entertaining, accessible and intelligent productions of classical texts for audiences, whatever their level of familiarity with such works. 'Part alternative rock band, part thespian, part performance art, the result is wholly charming' (The Times).
