This event has now closed.
he Globe Theatre stands empty, the stage bare, the Christmas tree undecorated and we need your help.
Someone has stolen the magic of Christmas from Snowdrop, the fairy who stands watch over our wooden ‘O’ during the winter months. Comedian Sandi Toksvig and her merry gang need your help to find it and bring it back to the Globe.
Sing along to classic Christmas songs with the tremendous Fourth Choir, prepare to make paper chains to decorate the theatre and get ready to harness your belief in the spirit of the season to help restore some festive cheer.
This is a show for the entire family so tell everyone you know to put on their favourite Christmas jumpers and join us for the most heart-warming of gatherings.
Help us spread the cheer further. In the spirit of storytelling and gift-giving, we’re inviting audiences to bring along a brand new children’s book as a present to put under the Christmas at the (Snow) Globe tree, which we’ll donate to local charities that support babies, children and young people. We are especially looking for donations of books suitable for those under the age of five.
Our charities are Home-Start, a local community network of trained volunteers helping families with young children through their challenging times; the Evelina Hospital School which educates children and young people who are patients of the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, just along the Southbank; and Little Village which seeks to alleviate the immediate effects of poverty for families in Southwark through re-gifting pre-loved clothes, toys and equipment for babies and pre-schoolers.
‘Tis the season to be jolly!
