Winter Walker : The Nutcracker and the Mouse King

  • Running time: 50 mins
  • Tickets: £12 / £10 full price or (£11/ £9 concessions)

Once upon a time, on Christmas Eve...

A young Prince is transformed into a wooden Nutcracker doll by the evil Mouse King's curse. Can a brave little girl break the spell in time for them both to join the magnificent Christmas party in the magical Kingdom of Sweets?

This playful, pocket-sized production is a funny and modern adaptation of Hoffmann's timeless tale. Combining storytelling, dance, and puppetry with original music, inspired by Tchaikovsky's elegant ballet, The Nutcracker Suite, this seasonal classic is a must-see this Christmas time.

Presented by acclaimed family theatre company WinterWalker, the perfect Christmas treat for the whole family to enjoy together!
