Ready…’Teddy’…Go! It’s time to get ‘dolled’ up and get your skates on because we’re heading to Toy Town for the brand new seasonal spectacular from Anya, Kevin, Gary and Bonzo the Dog (formerly of The Singing Kettle). There’s trouble in Toy Town because someone’s arrived who is up to ‘snow’ good. The mischievous Gnorbert the Gnome is about – creating mayhem and pinching everyone’s favourite things. Santa has asked the gang to look after his most precious toy, so it’s up to them to make sure Gnorbert doesn’t get his hands on it. There are also keys to discover, games to play and songs to sing, so they’ll definitely need your help too. With smashing singalongs such as ‘Bunny Fou Fou’ and ‘The Grand Old Duke Of York’, festive favourites like ‘Jingle Bells’ and brand new songs, Christmas in Toy Town is perfect holly-jolly silliness for all the family. We may even need your help on stage too! Come dressed as, or bring, your favourite toy, remember your Santa hat and get ready to kick-start your Christmas celebrations with FUNBOX!
