★★★★ ‘Utterly dazzling. Rumbustious, exhilarating dance theatre.’ Guardian 

This piece of dance-theatre captures the delirious excitement of two boys waiting for Father Christmas to arrive on the most magical night of the year. 

There are beds to be jumped on, pillows to be fought with, seas to be sailed…On this most extraordinary night, let your imagination soar right up to the stars.

Following in their tradition of bringing enchanting shows for small children to venues up and down the country, Travelling Light have created this show to get your feet tingling and your head spinning with a whirl of colourful images and playful sounds.

This is a deaf-friendly show. 

‘...a high-octane series of toe-tapping adventures.’
