EVENT CINEMA: Cbeebies Christmas Show
70 minutes | U

This year’s highly anticipated CBeebies Christmas Show is once again coming to the big screen from the theatre stage for a family-friendly feast of Christmas fun, premiering on 30th November and running throughout December.
The show is an adaptation of fairy-tale classic Hansel and Gretel and will again feature many of CBeebies' most popular talent, including, for the first time - Waffle the Wonder Dog! Audiences will also get a chance to see exclusive, additional content specially-made for the cinema.

This 2019 cinema-goers are set to be taken on a winter adventure through an enchanted forest as the story of Hansel and Gretel unfolds. The siblings must overcome the perils of the deep, dark wood in which they are lost, but with the help of the forest’s magical creatures and by not giving up, the pair prove to their family that the only thing that matters at Christmas is being together.
Hansel and Gretel is set against the backdrop and energy of the 1980s, inspiring the music, costume and set to get across the core message: never give up.
