Father Christmas Comes Up Trumps!

Talegate Theatre Productions:

Father Christmas is back, and this time he’s had three helpings of sprouts!

As he tries to deliver the presents, his tummy rumbles, gurgles and groans, but Father Christmas knows he must keep it in – he doesn’t want to wake anyone up!

TaleGate Theatre Productions hit the perfect combination of witty humour, fantastic music and the extra sparkle for which they have become known in this fabulously funny and brilliantly bouncy musical adaptation of Nicholas Allan’s sequel to ‘Father Christmas Needs a Wee.’


Friday 1st December – 6pm

This musical has been put together by the team than brought you the festive musical ‘Father Christmas Needs a Wee!’ which has seen success in a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and sell out UK tours for the past five years. With ‘Father Christmas Comes Up Trumps’ TaleGate Theatre Productions have yet again hit the perfect combination of witty humour, fantastic music and the extra sparkle for which they have become known in this fabulously funny and brilliantly bouncy musical adaptation of Nicholas Allan’s much loved series of books.

Artistic Director, James Worthington comments “We are very excited to tour our new festive musical across the UK. It promises to beat our own high standard and really pack a tuneful punch. We are really lucky to be working with Nicholas Allan again on another of his books as they are perfect for cheeky children everywhere. When even the title makes you laugh you know you are in for a good time!”
