Boing! Who Can Sleep On Christmas Eve?


A co-production with Travelling Light

For families and children aged 3 and over

Who wants to sleep on Christmas Eve? There are beds to be jumped on, pillows to be fought with, ghosts to be hunted, seas to be sailed... On this most magic of nights, you can let your imagination soar right up to the stars!

Following on their tradition of bringing enchanting shows for small children to Bristol Old Vic at Christmas, Travelling Light have been working with Champloo Dance to create a new piece of dance theatre to get your feet tingling, your toes tapping and your head spinning with a whirl of colourful images and playful sounds. Come and join in the fun!

"This is rumbustious, exhilarating dance theatre, enrapturing for children and adults alike." **** The Guardian
