Christmas Is RUINED! 
By Kathryn Gardner 

London. Christmas Eve. All the children are tucked up in their beds.

Bo has gone to bed in a big huff. He found out tonight that there won’t be many presents this year. So obviously this means that Christmas is RUINED!!

But someone is still awake. An inquisitive, smartly dressed Fox is going through the bins, as they do every night. But on this occasion, it’s not food they’re after.

You see, this Fox is scouring all the bins on the estate trying to work out what all the lights and singing and parties are about! Christmas? What's that?  It’s not going well.

What they really need is a Christmas connoisseur. Someone that REALLY knows their tree from their tinsel.

Fox's friends, the other creatures of the estate, are all celebrating their holidays in their own way, so a visit to them is certainly a good idea. And soon they will all be keen to learn from Bo’s extensive knowledge! He is the expert, after all!

Climb aboard as we whizz off on an adventure to meet a host of huge and hilarious characters where you'll get to sing, dance and help Fox and his friends as they learn how to be festive. 

This is a slightly bonkers, fun, family show with larger than life characters, eye popping acrobatics, and a generous dose of theatre magic. All performed in the round.

Is Christmas ruined? There’s only one way to find out!
