A Christmas Tradition

Wow! These last few weeks have flown by. I can’t believe what we have achieved in two months! Our Show in Derby has started and we can proudly announce our 10th Christmas show is ready to bring Christmas joy to families.

Three performers stand on stage and look out to the camera as they hold up a play toyshop and an old teddy.

We have been working flat out to create The Christmas Toyshop Mystery to celebrate our 10th year with DerbyLIVE. We’ve built relationships with audiences over the years and we often get families telling us we are part of their Christmas tradition. What a privilege that is. The children who have been coming for years are now teenagers and yet they still choose us to play a part in their Christmas celebrations. That really makes your heart sing. If you are one of those families, then thank you for your continued support. If you’ve yet to make it your family tradition, I can tell you, you won’t regret the trip to Derby. We have had such wonderful feedback from the performances; we know we have got the mix right again.

The story revolves around a mysterious toyshop, a lost teddy and one girl’s journey in trying to reunite her brother with his lost toy. Let us share with you a truly magical story that will entertain the whole family.
