'Tis the season to be jolly...'

... fa la la la la, la la la laaaa! Well, it's official. My tree is up as is my collection of tacky Santa's, I've already taken down three Christmas movies, an episode of Robbie the Reindeer and the first installment of the Hogfather, and my sequin dress is pressed and ready for the weekend. Well, not pressed. That would be silly. The iron would probably melt the sequins. But it's hanging up ready to go! It's Christmas!!

Our Bradon Forest Theatre production of Mary Teresa's Cupboard went superbly well last week and a review will be up shortly, but in the mean time... if you enjoyed that and are eager to be entertained by something other than Robbie the Reindeer this Christmas, then read on...

* Make sure you head down to Riffs Bar on Wednesday 16th December after our Christmas Concert here at the theatre for the Ragdoll Magazine awesome Christmas party. They have Disco Pie Rats, The Shuffle and Polly and the Kettles as well as karaoke and fancy dress!

* The Shudders are having a festive ho-down at 12 Bar on Friday 18th December to launch their new album. Not to be missed!

* The Empire Theatre Company will be entertaining audiences with the classic The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe at Swindon Arts Centre from 18th - 27th December.

* The Wyvern Theatre will be hosting their annual pantomime and this year it's Sleeping Beauty starring Lorraine Chase, or you can choose a slightly more cultured evening and catch the Russian State Ballet in January. Keep an eye on their calendar though as The Woman in Black is my 'one to watch'.

* Get the 29th January in your diary now as PangGotic Circus Theatre Company will be opening the 2010 season at the Bradon Forest Theatre with their amazing Full Twist. Stay tuned for more details.

If you are hosting a festive event then let me know and I'll mention it before the hols... fa la la la la, la la la laaaa!
