Peter Pan

1 December to 7 January 2024

Set sail to Neverland this Winter with Wendy (Chloé Holder), John and Michael on their journey to Neverland with Auntie Agatha (Joe Feeney), where they meet Peter Pan (Marcus J Foreman) and the Lost Boys, Tinkerbell (Lydia Hunt) and the most fearsome of all pirates – Captain Hook (Liam Harkins) and his silly sidekick Smee (Finlay Mckillop).

A swashbuckling family pantomime packed with amazing special effects, barrels of laughter, outstanding costumes … and a little bit of fairy dust!

1, 2 & 9 December

Redbridge Drama and Dance College and Ian Brandon present

Sneak and Peek: Santa’s Undercover Agents at the Academy

An endearing and entertaining musical for children of all ages. It captures the magic of Santa’s world while showcasing the determination and heart of two young elves striving to become real undercover agents.

Santa’s Christmas Workshop

16 & 17 December

Come and visit Santa’s Workshop, where Santa and his hard-working elves are busily getting ready for The Big Day.

There is so much for everyone to do: all the boys and girls need to write their letters to Santa, and make sure the letters are safely put in Santa’s post-box. You’ll then help the elves to get ready for their special Christmas party – help decide what songs they’ll sing, learn their special dance routines, and join in their party games.

Santa himself will be on hand to join in the fun and give every child their special Christmas gift.
