The hilarious, heartwarming tale about a brave little bear who helps to save Christmas!

It’s almost Christmas eve! Daddy Bear and Baby Bear are busy decorating their tree, when suddenly they hear a crash, bang, wallop outside their front door!

It’s poor Santa, and he’s fallen from the sky! There’s no more flying for him tonight. But, who will deliver the presents in time for Christmas? It’s Baby Bear to the rescue!

This glittering, snowy tale is the perfect treat for Christmas with exquisite puppets, enchanting music and a magical snowy setting. This is a magical, interactive show especially for little bears aged 3 – 6, and their grown-ups! There’s even a surprise visit from Santa!


Pyjama Performance! Stay up late on Friday 20 December for our evening show at 7pm; wear your pyjamas and onesies and why not bring your own bear so it can enjoy the show too? A perfect treat for the start of the Christmas holidays.

Theatre treats available: We’ll have cups of milk and freshly baked cookies and more pocket-money priced treats available to enjoy during the show.


Little Blue Monster are a theatre company who create beautiful shows for children and their grown-ups. This is their third Christmas production at The Met, following their success with Santa’s Little Helper in 2017, and Lily and the Christmas Snow Bear in 2018.
