The first ever stage adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas. Read More >

The Lyric Hammersmith and Pins and Needles Productions present the first ever stage adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas.

Produced especially for children under six, Father Christmas tells the story of every child’s favourite Christmas visitor who awakes from a dream of summer sun only to realise that it’s bloomin’ Christmas Eve and the start of his longest night of the year.

With specially commissioned original music and spectacular design, the festive story, which is loved by generations of children and their parents, is brought to life by the company behind the Lyric Hammersmith’s 2011 Christmas show, Holly And Ivan’s Christmas Adventure.
