This house… isn’t just any old house.


Belle wants adventure and excitement, just like the plots in her favourite books. But when her Father doesn’t return from one of his trips she finds that adventure is far more dangerous and difficult than she had imagined.

Soon she is trapped inside a house in which everything is coming to life and is ruled over by a strange and mysterious monster: the Beast. There are friends to be made, secrets to be unearthed and a battle to be fought before she can set herself free.

From the company who brought you The Snow Queen, Five Children and It and Bobbin. Join Tea Break Theatre this Christmas as they bring Sutton House to life using puppetry, music and drama in this interactive promenade performance that promises to be their most magical yet.

Will you follow Belle into this enchanted place and help her break the spell?

The Drayton Arms Theatre, 153 Old Brompton Road, London SW5 0LJ

Fat Rascal Theatre in association with The Drayton Arms presents:

A new adult pantomime

From the filthy minds behind BUZZ: A New Musical, Fat Rascal Theatre presents a brand new adult pantomime, coming to the Drayton Arms Theatre this Christmas.

When young Colin is left with nothing but a cat in his father's will he's ready to give up. He is a millennial after all. It's left to Puss to sort his master’s life out, rid the land of evil and gain Colin enough standing to marry the beautiful (but vacant) princess Fififi, because as 2016 has proved, anyone can rule a kingdom if you tell enough lies.

Our naughty pussy is going on a magical adventure featuring an all-female cast, original music, side-splitting laughs and special effects that will make you think we actually have some kind of budget. Leave grandma at home with the cheeseboard and let Fat Rascal Theatre purr-suade you to try something a little different this year.

Fat Rascal Theatre is a fresh new company from this year’s East 15 Acting School graduates. They are bold, cheeky and brash, using music and comedy to educate and empower. Robyn Grant (Book and Lyrics) and James Ringer-Beck (Music) are thrilled to be returning to this wonderful theatre in South Kensington with their new adult pantomime, Puss in Boots. With choreography from Matthew Ives and a cast that includes Allie Munro, Katie Wells and Rosie Raven.

Suitable for ages 14+ (contains strong language)

Gary's Warehouse, The Bottle Shop, 128 Druid Street, Bermondsey, London SE1 2HH


After a sell-out run last year, The Night Before Christmas is coming back to Bermondsey!

An (anti)Christmas Night Out With a Difference! Following an extremely successful run last year, Different Breed Theatre are bringing back their production of Anthony Neilson’s dark Christmas comedy, The Night Before Christmas, for a longer run and with some new developments.

Presented once again in Gary's Warehouse in Bermondsey and watch an elf (well...he says he's an elf) will once again have to talk his way out of a hostage situation.

The cast of West End actors includes Timothy O’Hara straight from 11 months as Christopher Wren in The Mousetrap; Michelle Luther who was nominated for Best Actress in the Off West End Awards for her recent performance in Dreamplay at The Vaults; Chris Harper who played Benedick in last year’s Globe production of Much Ado about Nothing; and Glenn Hanning who performed in Edward Bond’s Dea at the Secombe Centre this summer.

Last year Melanie Hill (Cathy Matthews from Coronation Street) said of the show, “It was so fecking good it laddered my Christmas stockings...!”

Our (slightly pervy) Santa will be in his Grotty Hole giving out some fairly questionable gifts to those brave enough to sit on his knee! There will be rude Christmas cards on sale. On the Saturday nights there will be stand-up comedy after the play. There will be beer from local breweries and delicious alternative Jamaican Christmas food from Arawak Catering.

Fun for grownups* (15+) this is perfect for: Christmas Parties, Lonely Evenings for One, A Chilled Night Out, or even A Festive Tinder/Grindr Date Night with a Difference.

*some reasonably placed swearing and sexual language where necessary.

Cast/Creatives: Chris Harper – Simon; Timothy O’Hara – Gary; Michelle Luther – Cherry; Glenn Hanning – Elf.

Illuminations present an exclusive DVD

By William Shakespeare

Now on Sale

Deborah Warner’s dazzling and controversial staging of Richard II starring Fiona Shaw
First presented at London’s National Theatre in 1995
and re-staged for broadcast on BBC2 in 1997
150 minutes including extras / £17.99 including VAT

Deborah Warner’ sumptuous and startling television film, Richard II, is a unique interpretation of Shakespeare’s tale of a monarch’s downfall.

Two decades on from the creation of this landmark production, Illuminations is releasing Richard II for the first time on DVD.

Fiona Shaw’s portrayal as King Richard II stirred up significant critical controversy when she appeared on stage in 1995 at the National Theatre and then later in Salzburg and Paris.

For the screen version, Deborah Warner and production designer, Hildegard Bechtler re-imagined Richard II as an innovative drama that was shot over a fortnight using film techniques.

Playing alongside Fiona Shaw is a distinguished cast of actors including Donald Sinden (Duke of York), Richard Bremmer Henry Bolingbroke), Julian Rhind-Tutt (Duke of Aumerle), Kevin McKidd (Harry Percy) and Paola Dionisotti (Duchess of York).

DVD extras include Making Richard II featuring two recent interviews with Deborah Warner and Fiona Shaw and a 16-page booklet of critical reviews and stunning production stills.

Format: PAL region 0 / Subtitles: English for the hard of hearing

Chickenshed present the World Premiere of a brand new musical:

Adventure to Oz
by Lou Stein

This Christmas we will be presenting a world premiere of a fantastical new musical, based on the much-loved and wonderful Oz stories of L. Frank Baum - Adventure to Oz! The show will be a mammoth undertaking and a true theatrical spectacle, created by our new Artistic Director, Lou Stein – and we absolutely cannot wait to share it with audiences!

In this dazzling production, we will encounter familiar characters such as Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, and we will be introduced to new loveable and memorable characters such as the incredible Patchwork Girl and Ojo the Unlucky Munchkin. We will travel along the famous Yellow Brick Road with a brave band of friends on a quest to release Ojo’s Uncle from an enchantment that has turned him to stone.

Our huge and diverse cast continually wows and entrances audiences and includes hundreds of children, young people and adults all working together to create a theatrical extravaganza.

The production will brilliantly demonstrate our continued desire to reflect and include our entire community.

This will be a show of incredible scale – if you’ve seen a Chickenshed Christmas show before, expect to be even more dazzled and amazed. And if you’ve never seen a Chickenshed Christmas show, then what are you waiting for? Follow the Yellow Brick Road to Chickenshed for an unforgettable theatrical experience this Christmas!

Until Sunday 8th January 2017
Good’s Way, King’s Cross, London, N1C 4UR

This Olivier and Tony Award-winning Broadway musical continues to play in London following a critically acclaimed sell-out UK premiere at Southwark Playhouse in 2014.



Initially booked for a limited 4 week run, 3 Olivier Award-winning Broadway musical In The Heights extended its run at King’s Cross Theatre for a fourth time, until its final performance on Sunday 8th January 2017.

In The Heights is an uplifting and exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan's most vibrant communities – a place where the coffee is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind. With a gripping story and unforgettable Latin and hip-hop infused score, In The Heights is a ground-breaking contemporary musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.

King’s Cross Theatre is a brand new purpose built theatre at King’s Cross Station.

A late night bar is open to coincide with performances of In The Heights.
Opening an hour before every performance until late, with live music and DJs after certain performances.

Performances: Monday Thursday Friday 8pm, Tuesday 3pm and 8pm, Saturday 8.30pm, Sunday 6pm.
