How It Works

Our Online Christmas Eve Special will be available to purchase until 6.45pm on Sun 24 Dec, so be sure to buy in good time to avoid disappointment.

You will receive an email with your e-ticket attached after booking. This e-ticket will contain a link to the page on our website where the recording will be accessed. You will need to be logged in to Nottingham Playhouse account. Alternatively, head to our Digital Library to view it.

Once you’re logged in, head to the second link in your e-ticket – that’s where you’ll watch the show. If you encounter any issues, please visit our FAQ page for help.

We recommend you start viewing the show before 7.30pm and no later than 8pm, as the video will be taken down after this point and we don’t want you to miss any of the magic.
