Christmas at Brighton Dome

Christmas at Brighton Dome

Our Santa’s sack of Christmas events features theatre, music, carols, circus and comedy for all. Read on to find out more, as we unwrap what’s on in Brighton Dome this Christmas…

Sat 19 - Sun 27 Dec
This magical and mesmerizing performance from contemporary circus company Pirates of the Carabina promises to be a beautifully bonkers Christmas show. A flying aerialist tries to iron her party-dress, a stagehand gets tangled in the decorations and stuntmen argue (in the air) with the pesky festive lights. Sounds just like any ‘normal’ family Christmas, then…

The Snow Queen
Sat 2 & Sun 3 Jan
Another Christmas classic heading to Brighton Dome’s stage is Ballet Theatre UK’s beautiful re-telling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy-tale ballet The Snow Queen (Sat 2 & Sun 3 January) - the iconic tale that inspired the smash hit movie Frozen. This spectacular production follows the story of a young girl and her quest in search of The Snow Queen who has placed her kingdom under an evil spell. A magical adventure takes her on a journey across the frozen north where she encounters an enchanted reindeer, glittering Ice Princesses and charming Snowmen in search of true love. Ballet Theatre UK's renowned company of international dancers, beautiful costumes and glittering stage sets combine to create a magnificent spectacle, all set to a glorious and magical score.Rock out your Foxtrot and journey back to a bygone era at our Christmas Tea Dance on Sun 6 Dec.

Kate Rusby at Christmas

The Brighton Festival Chorus’ Christmas Concert on Sat 12 Dec will deliver a sparkling celebration of Christmas music, from traditional to modern, including all your best-loved carols and festive favourites.

Andrew Barnett Jones plays The Panto Game on Sat 12 Dec. Andrew has made up stories for loads of top TV shows from Mr Bean: the Animated Series to Shaun the Sheep, but this Christmas he’ll turn his attentions to the humble pantomime.
