A Musical Christmas

By Uncategorized

A Musical Christmas promises to be the perfect way to start your festive celebrations.

We are transforming the indoor Quad at Bedales into a warm and magical environment full of festive cheer. A Musical Christmas is an immersive event, rather than just a show – audiences will be seated on a variety of different chairs and sofas, all grouped around small tables. It’s going to be cosy and enchanting!

During the first hour there will be carol singers walking through the crowd and live music playing, along with games should you wish to get involved. Drinks will be on sale, and complimentary nibbles & treats will be available to all. This will be a great opportunity to catch up with friends and family.

After an hour of settling in, members of Petersfield Youth Theatre will perform a selection of Christmas songs, along with an eight-piece band. After the performance, more festive treats will be available as you continue to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Tickets are £14 each and sold as unreserved, and your actual seating will be allocated by our dedicated team before you arrive. Be reassured, that there won’t be a stampede for seats, we’ll have it all calmly under control! The venue is intimate, so all seats will have a good view of the stage. If you wish to sit with friends or family, it’s important that you book together. Remember; book together to sit together!

We hope you’ll be able to join us!
