Moomin Valley. Home to the loveable Moomin family, who are hibernating for the Winter, as Moomin’s tend to do. When they’re unexpectedly woken, they discover that Christmas is coming. But they have no idea what Christmas is, and it sounds like an angry and dangerous person! As the story unravels, the Moomins go on a journey of Christmas discovery involving a sparkly fir tree, a Christmas feast and some special gifts.
The Fir Tree is a lovely Children’s Christmas show full of puppetry, music, and a beautiful snowy winter wonderland setting. We were lucky enough to go along to Norden Farm Centre for the Arts to check it out, and it certainly got us in the Christmas spirit. The characters are loveable and very funny. I was surrounded by children belly-laughing at the slapstick comedy at the beginning, and the story and stage effects kept them watching through to the end. So, if like us, you want to get your Christmas thang going on, this show is definitely worth a visit.
The Fir Tree is suitable for ages 3 years + and lasts approximately 55 minutes. One of the things I really love about going to a children’s show at Norden Farm is that it’s a relaxed setting and no one’s going to be looking around at a little one asking questions or needing to stretch their legs.
If you want to book tickets for The Fir Tree, the show runs from now until 30 December 2018. A few dates are sold out but there’s still availability for weekend and weekday shows.
