Back by popular demand! Can you help rescue The Spirit of Christmas?

After receiving amazing reviews from both critics and audience alike, Contact and Slung Low are once again teaming up to save Christmas, but we need your help!

The Spirit of Christmas has been taken, and is hidden deep within Contact’s castle. Are you brave enough to find out what’s happened and set The Spirit free in time for the holidays?

Starting outside the main doors of Contact, and taking you to places that audiences never usually see, The Siege of Christmas is an immersive theatrical adventure for young audiences and the taller people that look after them.

Fun for all the family. Suitable for children aged 5 and over.

Extra performance now added due to demand! 8pm Friday 15th December.
