A Merry Mayhem – Christmas puppet show

Tom Skylark is in festive spirits - he has done all his Christmas shopping and wants to tell you a story - but Charlie the Fox has other ideas and mirthful mayhem ensues!

See Rudolf the Reindeer told in colourful shadow puppetry, and a fox firing himself from a cannon in this joyful mischievous celebratory show by acclaimed theatre company WishWorks. 

“Nobody wanted Christmas presents this year- they just wanted you to come back and do a show for them”

Good King Wenceslas

Originally commissioned for the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in 2011, aimed at children aged 3-12 and their families.

King Wenceslas travels through the forest to find the woodcutter and bring him Christmas cheer, with the help of his minstrel, the three bears and the Little Good Wolf!

Hand, rod, shadow and glove puppets, storytelling and audience interaction make this secular festive show a treat for all.

“You are top of my list of people I would like to work with again. Thank you for submitting your wonderful storytelling brief to us at Kew for this year’s Christmas programme”  Katie Weaver, Public Engagement and Learning, RBG Kew
