OUR KIND OF CHRISTMAS

Our typical Christmas Day routine…

C: We always get up early for Santa! Then it’s a real family affair at home – a chance for us all to be together and catch up properly during a busy panto season.

D: Dad normally comes over the night before and then on Christmas Day. We’ll have a really traditional lunch – it’s lovely.

Our Christmas traditions…

D: Dad always listens to the Queens speech – he never misses it. I always go to the pub while the dinner is being made. I also always wear my Christmas jumper!

Our favourite Christmas TV viewing…

D: It has to be Home Alone!

Our favourite Christmas song…

Both: Blue Christmas by Elvis – it’s a classic.

Our most memorable Christmas presents…

C: My bike.

D: A Barbie doll – thanks dad!

Our dream Christmas dinner…

Both: Very traditional, from the turkey to pigs in blankets, sprouts and setting fire to the Christmas pud.

Our favourite thing about the festive period…

Both: That’s easy – panto time at Theatre Royal!


Tickets to this year’s pantomime cost from £13 per person and can be purchased from the Theatre Royal Box Office on 08448 11 2121, or online at theatreroyal.co.uk.
