We’ve added two extra performances of Santa’s Little Helper on Tuesday 19 December. Tickets are just £8 each for these additional shows.

It’s nearly Christmas, and as the snow falls softly outside, young Albert Tuttle hops into bed. But he’s far too excited to sleep. Santa will be here in just a few hours!

As the clock strikes midnight, Albert is in for a very big surprise. For stuck up the chimney is a jolly old fellow with a fluffy white beard and big, round belly.

It’s Santa – and he needs Albert’s help!

Packed with family-fun and christmas capers, Santa’s Little Helper features original music, hand-crafted puppetry and high-energy storytelling, with plenty of opportunities for children to join-in.

The show is designed for young people aged 3 years and over, and their families.

The performance lasts 60 minutes with no interval. There will be opportunities for children to meet Albert and the other puppets following the show.


Santa’s Little Helper has been created by the popular Little Blue Monster Theatre Company. Last seen at The Met in October with Dogs Don’t Do Ballet, they return in February with their next production Lost and Found.


Do you have a child too small or young to sit in their own seat? Just buy a babe-in-arms ticket for £1 and sit them on your knee.
