"Somebody's been sleeping my bed"

No matter how hard she tries, Goldilocks can’t sit still. She just wants to dance but where she’s from, it’s forbidden. Unable to keep her toes from tap tap tapping, she has no option but to make her great escape.

She runs through busy cityscapes and frosty beaches until she reaches a magical forest and a home like none she’s ever known. But what happens when a family of bears return to find that someone has made a right old mess of their lair?

Join Goldilocks and the Three Bears on this pop-tastic dance-party of an adventure exploring friendship, home and daring to share. With music, magic and plenty of opportunities to join in along the way, this show is ‘just right’ for little humans aged 3 – 8 and their grown ups.

“the sweetest and most perfect little Christmas show for the littles and their not-so-little parents”
