Join us for magical and immersive theatrical experience where our youngest audience members and their families will go on an adventure to discover the real creators of ‘Christmas cheer’!

Christmas is coming and as the festive season draws nearer the world starts to feel a little bit different…
…there is a kind of magic in the air, something you can’t quite put your mitten-clad finger on.
It’s that warm fuzziness that starts in your toes and ends in your nose…
Some people might call it Christmas cheer, but we know that there is a very special character who is responsible for this warm, fuzzy feeling, this special kind of magic and we’ve managed to track them down!

The Christmas Fairy is an amazing little sprite, completely invisible to grown-ups and they live in the house of families who have specially chosen each Christmas whilst they carry out their important work, sprinkling the world with Christmas magic! The only way to know if you have been chosen by a Christmas fairy is if you discover a pair of fairy-sized shoes outside your door on Christmas Eve. So come along to this enchanting show at Proteus Creation Space and find out if you have been chosen this year!

Every year [the show] is so magic and special, my children really enjoy it. The look on the children’s faces tell you everything you need to know

A guaranteed memory-making theatre experience for the whole family.

All about this magical show

For the past 7 years, ScratchBuilt in association with Proteus have created an immersive Christmas experience for younger children and their families; transforming their home at the Creation Space into an enchanted festive walk-through adventure.

We had the most amazing experience! It really did bring a bit of magic to 2020! Thank you to the wonderful team who put the show together, they were brilliant

-Emily, Basingstoke Gazette

This gently interactive show is a perfect ‘first theatre experience’ and children are encouraged to explore, play, create and interact with the enchanting surroundings and colourful characters that they meet along the way. 

As always the show features Scratchbuilt’s trademark mix of interactive storytelling, exquisitely hand-crafted set design and beautiful (and funny!) puppetry, music and sensory elements, all with a generous dusting of Christmas magic, this show is the perfect festive treat for both younger audiences and the young-at-heart!
