‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

A magical Queen’s Theatre show for 3 – 7 year olds and their families performed at a new venue, in the historic Hayloft at the charming National Trust property Rainham Hall

Leave your shoes and slippers by the fireplace and settle down to hear one child’s story about the night they met a certain twinkly eyed, round-bellied chap! This unique experience will get everyone, young and old, peering a little further into the sky this Christmas Eve.

‘…wonderfully wrapped up the story in a way you have never experienced before.’

Unfortunately, due to the intimate nature of this storytelling performance, children under the age of 3 cannot be admitted to this production.

Venue : Rainham Hall, The Broadway, Rainham, RM13 9YN
