Step into a world of wonder with the Babbling Vagabonds’ captivating Christmas show, “The Night Before, The Night Before Christmas.” Two brothers are on a quest to collect all the words in the world. But a swirling snow storm stops them in their tracks. As they desperately try to work out how to get home in time for Christmas, the words they have gathered tumble out into magical adventures.

Join us on a journey filled with stories of mischievous goats, clever hedgehogs, and a funny little man who spins straw into gold. These tall tales will dance up your spine, steal your breath, and whisper magic in your ears.
Immerse yourself in a theatrical experience, where the warmth of Christmas unfolds and the wonder of storytelling transports you to a world where your imagination can take flight.

Come and share a magical journey with the whole family this December with “The Night Before, The Night Before Christmas” – a spellbinding tale told using storytelling, puppets, shadow play and pops ups. Book your tickets today!

“From the youngest at 18 months old to the oldest 54 with all possible variations between, our large party were mesmerised by the magical visual feast.”

“The perfect combination of childish and adult humour. Joyous, inventive and engaging!”
