About the event

The Babbling Vagabonds return with more seasonal shenanigans.

Christmas is around the corner… but, the Christmas Toy Shop is nearly empty! It’s too late to sell what is left on the shelves! The remaining toys are destined for the old dark store room, or worse still, the incinerator!

But, this year something curious happens! With a pinch of fairy dust and a Christmas wish odd things start to happen. Magic and mystery surround the old Christmas Toy Shop - but what is really going on behind the shuttered windows?

Colourful characters, catchy tunes, puppets and theatrical magic come to the Guildhall Theatre stage and will make your family’s Christmas truly special this year.

Join those festive funsters, The Babbling Vagabonds to find out what really happens when a ballerina stops dancing, a robot stops computing and a jack in the box loses his bounce.

 

Join the Babbling Vagabonds in their interactive workshops this October Half Term at Markeaton Park: The Christmas Toy Shop Workshop

To book on to the relaxed performance taking place on the 15th December, 2.30pm please contact the box office on 01332 255800 option 1.
