Become the prop maker, performer, and producer of your very own Christmas Show – The Gift of Winter

Add +

Instead of our children’s Christmas show, this year we are offering a pay what you can creative-play project by CBeebies Patrick Lynch and Lyngo Theatre.

Pay what you can for The Gift of Winter ticket here:

With over a week to go until Christmas keep the kiddies entertained with a beautifully crafted film that will fill them with inspiration to create their very own show from recycled materials and household objects.

Booking a ticket allows a household the key to access this creative play journey. Via a specially made website you can watch the film and follow fun instructional videos on how to make props and table-top sets all made from easily obtained material like cardboard and plastic bottles, so no extra spending is needed.

Patrick Lynch, the artistic director of Lyngo and co-creator of the project says, “Play@Home comes out of our long experience with early-years interactive shows in which we give a series of fascinating and wonderful props to family units and facilitate free play between them while placing the whole event in a wider theatrical context. In this way everyone makes the show together simply by following their natural play instincts. This project is more directed because there are some very specific instructions, but the aim is still to get people away from their screens and playing together.”

The Gift of Winter will be available until the 3rd January and because there is no live aspect to the project a family can dip in and out over the festive period whenever they wish.

“It was amazing to see how much my daughter was taken in when watching the video and how engaged she was in the whole process.” – Participant

Patrick Lynch has worked for many years with the children’s theatre company Oily Cart and presented Cbeebies programmes like Razzle Dazzle and Let’s Celebrate. Please see a promo of the show here:

Suitable for families with children under 10.

Unlimited access until 3rd January
