Wish your way into the Christmas season at Strangers' Hall with a magical puppet show, seasonal trail and 'hurdy-gurdy' music!

Take a seat and immerse yourself in the magic of Christmas in our beautifully decorated Great Hall. Be entertained by Fools Puppet Theatre Companie and their delightful tale of St Nicholas and the Wishing Tree, with hurdy-gurdy musical accompaniment.

Will Jane and James' wishes come true? Will St Nicholas come? Who are all these uninvited guests? All shall be revealed!

After the performance you will tour the lower rooms of the museum, decorated for Christmas in the traditional style whilst following a magical seasonal trail linked to the puppet show.

The whole experience lasts an around an hour.

Benches and chairs will be grouped per family booking to ensure Covid-19 safety. There will be ventilation including open doors so please wear warm clothing. Seating will be sanitised between performances.
