London. Christmas Eve. The snow is falling.

A little girl struggles fiercely through the cold. We follow her throughout the day as she encounters the funny and zany characters of the vibrant city streets. In an attempt to stay warm she strikes a match.

The flame blazes to life, illuminating fantastic Christmas visions. We meet talking turkeys, dancing rats, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree.

In this touching, madcap and heart-warming Christmas show, The Last Baguette use visual story telling, live music and puppetry to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter tale.

The Last Baguette have performed in the UK, France, Switzerland and Canada, and are company in residence at Pound Arts, Corsham. The theatre they make is entertaining, accessible and eccentric.

Written by T. A. Woodsmith Sunday Times Playwriting Award winner.

Supported by Arts Council England.
