View tour schedule

Realising that they are now lost and alone, Hansel and Gretel are chased by nocturnal creatures through the wood before they stumble across a gingerbread cottage in a clearing. Hungry, they gorge on the gingerbread until the witch catches them red-handed. Join this skilful duo trying to evade the creatures of the night, a spiteful sugarplum fairy and singing gingerbread men as they try to find their way back home in this wonderful re-telling of the classic fairytale.

"Brilliantly, amazingly magical!" Audience member on How Many Sleeps 'til Christmas 2017
