Children's Shows Theatre Today In London

More Christmassy tips round up 2018

By | Published on Sunday 16 December 2018

When we were putting together this year’s Christmas tips, it occurred to us that there are loads of shows that we tipped in late November and early December that are running throughout December, some into January, which definitely fall into the category of “Christmas show”.

We weren’t able to add them to the tips, of course, because they had already been tipped, and so we decided do a quick round up here so that you don’t forget to consider them when looking at what do and see during your festive season:

If you’re looking for a show for children or families (and be prepared, there are loads) there’s Hansel & Gretel at The Place, Can’t Wait For Christmas at the Orange Tree Theatre (pictured), Philip Pullman’s Grimm Tales at the Unicorn Theatre, The Box Of Delights at Wilton’s, Peter Pan at The Park Theatre, Huddle at the Unicorn Theatre, Knitmas – A Winter Yarn at Greenwich Theatre, The Gingerbread Man at Jacksons Lane, and Return To Elm House at Battersea Arts Centre. 

If, on the other hand, you are not the owner of a child, you might be interested in The Boy Under The Christmas Tree at King’s Head Theatre, Cinderella: A Fairytale at Jack Studio Theatre (probably okay for secondary age children, from what I can gather, but not really a kids show), Bad Cinderella at The Cockpit (very, very much not for children), The Night Before Christmas at Southwark Playhouse, and How To Catch A Krampus at Pleasance Theatre.

Finally, if you fancy a pantomime (and who doesn’t at this time of the year?) there’s Rapunzel at Hoxton Hall, Cinderella and The Beanstalk at Theatre503, Buttons – A Cinderella Story at King’s Head Theatre and Robinson Crusoe at Greenwich Theatre. This isn’t an exhaustive list of pantos in London, of course, so please feel free to search for more…

And that’s it for 2018. Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas. See you in 2019.
