Little Owl and the Christmas Lights - Amelia


It's Christmas Eve and the snow is falling deeply in the forest. Little Owl gazes in awe, curious to know what lies beyond his home, and encouraged by his woodland friends Deer, Squirrel, and Fox, he takes off on a fearless flight across the snow drifts, to find out for himself, the true meaning of Christmas.

This enchanting production uses puppetry, original songs and spectacular animations featuring some of the best loved local attractions including the ice rink and Bedgebury Pinetum.

Produced and performed by leading industry talents in a show commissioned especially for The Amelia Scott, this visually stunning family show is the perfect Christmas experience for all children from the very young through to early school years.

This magical production is presented in The Amelia's beautiful Temporary Exhibition space. Ticket prices include a free-gift, a free downloadable activity pack and are just £6 each for school groups and £10 for all other tickets, including booking fees.

The production has been made possible by the generous support of Cripps, RBC Brewin Dolphin and Childrensalon.

Book early - you'll have a hoot!
