Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a nativity and this nativity will have you laughing in the stable! We're delighted that popular local amateur drama society, The Allerton Players, are back on The Forum stage with a new comedy by the author of Calendar Girls.
The children of Flint Street primary school (all played by adults) are putting on a nativity play, although some seem more committed to it than others! Some are not happy with the part they have been given, some are more interested in their favourite television series or the class pet, and others are concerned about their parents coming to see them. Or not coming... Funny and sad at turns, this play will bring back memories of all the school nativity plays you've ever seen!
"...exposes what an ungodly snake pit of paediatric power politics the staging of your average Nativity play can be" Alfred Hickling - The Guardian
Christmas simply wouldn't be Christmas without a visit to 26 Oil Drum Lane to catch up with the nation's favourite rag-and-bone men and indulge in some classic, festive misadventures! Albert and Harold, united by blood, divided over everything else, seem doomed to spend Christmas in each other's company. But Harold has his flights of fancy including a flight he fancies abroad or to throw the biggest Christmas party London has ever had to offer! Albert of course has other ideas... who wouldn't want to spend Christmas at Mrs Clifford's B&B in Bognor Regis?
These much-loved episodes of classic comedy from Ray Galton and Alan Simpson have been freshly adapted for the stage and are presented by Hambledon Productions - the company behind the recent sell-out successes 'Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show' and 'Steptoe and Son'.
The Greatest Showman is the number one musical film of the year and we're thrilled to bring you The Greatest Showman Tribute, a live show which includes a remarkable vocal trio led by the Greatest Showman who will take you on a journey through the amazing soundtrack of the original film.
Acrobats, fire throwers and stilt walkers make this a magical event along with brilliantly choreographed dance routines, authentic costumes and a medley of sing-along hits. This is a show not to missed and a perfect family treat in the run up to Christmas.
“Me, you and the old guitar,
How perfectly, perfectly happy we are.
MEEE-EW and the old guitar.
How PURRR-fectly happy we are!”
Tabby McTat is a cat with the loudest of meee-ews and a best friend with a guitar. Together they sing their favourite songs delighting the crowds, until one day Fred disappears. Separated and alone, Tabby finds shelter and a new life with all the home comforts that any cat could dream of. However, memories of his life with Fred haunt him, and he sets off to search the streets for his long-lost friend.
Interwoven with original songs, Tabby McTat is the heart-warming tale of friendship and loyalty from the team behind Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales.
Suitable for children and families of all ages.

Based on Charles Dickens’s own performance adaptation, Simon Callow and director Tom Cairns have created a one-man theatrical extravaganza of festive storytelling that is both heart-warming and deeply moving. Following critically acclaimed, sold-out theatre seasons in 2011, 2012 and again in 2016, Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love) returns to wow audiences with this tour de force performance, reimagined especially for cinema. A Christmas must see!
