This event has now finished.

Santa is determined to deliver the most fantastic Christmas present to Sarah, but he doesn't get it right straight away! With the help of his cheeky Elf, he finally settles on something ‘perfect', just in time for Christmas Eve.


From the author of the well-loved children’s book Dear Zoo, Rod Campbell, comes Dear Santa and it’s LIVE! This show is an ideal introduction to theatre for those aged two and over. The Christmas cheer continues with the opportunity to meet Santa in his grotto after the show, where every child will receive an extra special gift!

This is sure to be one Christmas present children and parents alike will never forget! The perfect family show that will be enjoyed by all this Festive Season.


Included in every ticket purchase is the opportunity for children to meet Santa and receive a gift!

To keep our grotto running smoothly for everyone, there are some important rules in place.

  • If you would like to meet Santa, please wait in the auditorium for your row to be called after the show.
  • We kindly request that after meeting Santa, coats and belongings should be sorted out in the café or foyer, not at the grotto exit point!
  • Please note that queuing for the grotto could take around 30 mins.
  • If you do not wish to queue, you may collect your gift immediately upon exiting.

Santa and the gang can’t wait to meet you!

Access Performances

We’ve indicated on the seating plan which seats give the best view of the interpreter.

Relaxed performances are open to everyone but are particularly suitable for people with sensory, communication or learning disabilities, and anyone who would benefit from a less formal environment. Audience members should feel comfortable making noise and moving around as and when they need to.

Touch Tours give blind or visually impaired audience members an opportunity to go up on stage and touch parts of the set, props and costumes to help immerse themselves in the imaginary world on stage. They can also be attended by anyone who would benefit from familiarising themselves with the auditorium and set before attending a performance.

To attend a Touch Tour,  please contact the Box Office on 020 8369 5454 or email at least 48 hours before the touch tour.
