The Krumpus

Alice knows at Christmas if you’ve been good you receive presents and if you’re naughty to expect a lump of coal. She had heard stories of monsters under the bed but didn’t really believe them.

But when the Krumpus visits her on Christmas Eve she discovers not only are the monsters real, but even they have their demons.

The UK’s most followed poet and bestselling author Nikita Gill (Fierce Fairytales: Poems and Stories to Stir Your Soul) brings her stories to life on stage for the first time in this interactive tale for older children and adults.

When is it?

  • Various dates available

Where is it at?

    why cant we park on Peel St near Hudds Town hall. To walk from the multi storey is too far for me. I sometimes take a taxi but they are always so busy at leaving time.
