Event description
Our fun and friendly puppets come together again to introduce their new friend, Phoebe, to all things festive in "Phoebe’s First Christmas"

About this event

Christmas for Kids are dedicated to creating work for children with special educational needs and/or life limiting conditions. Following the success of our first digital show in 2020, we proudly present another digital offering for 2021!

Combining music, puppetry, colourful visuals and sensory play, each Christmas gift the puppets open throughout the show reveals an element of Christmas celebration, which transports the audience into a world of play, fantasy and sensory exploration. The interactive elements of the show are guided by a Resource E-Pack and accompanying ‘how to’ videos.

Christmas for Kids is the annual festive project delivered by Embracing Arts, who specialise in providing access to the arts for children with complex care or educational needs and life-limiting conditions. Offered entirely for free to children’s hospice services, SEND schools and community groups UK-wide throughout December and January, this show also incorporates key word signing and will be available in captioned and BSL formats.

"It made such a difference to the children and their families, and also, to the staff – we all loved it – it’s just what we needed." - Staff Carer, Children's Hospice, of our 2020 digital show.

Through their participation in the 2020 show, our evaluation report showed that children feel more valued and understood, and their carers feel less isolated and stressed. As a result, these children and their carers, see an improved quality of life.
