The Night Before Christmas

An interactive storytelling performance for 0 - 4 year olds


Adapted for storytelling, written and told by Hannah Summers, illustrations by Miranda Summers.

Inspired by and adapted from the 19th Century tale by Clement Clarke Moore

A family stay at Granny's chocolate-box cottage for Christmas. The children soon discover everything that is exciting about this time of year with festive interaction, an imaginative re-telling of the classic tale and they might even sneak-a-peak at the jolly chap who will visit with presents if they're all good boys and girls!

A wonderfully high-spirited spin on an old favourite that will inspire even the most 'bah humbug'. You and your little one will love this!

An illustration of Father Christmas surrounded by presents.
