By Tove JanssonFrom Tales in Moominvalley
The Moomin family was hibernating in the drawing room as they were wont to do. They had been sleeping for a few months already and were going to keep it up until spring… Now all at once a cold draught disturbed Moomintroll’s dreams. And someone was pulling at his quilt and shouting that he was tired and Christmas was coming.
Featuring live puppetry and music, The Fir Tree is an adventure set in the idyllic and peaceful Moominvalley. It is a gloriously unselfish take on Christmas.
Suitable for all audiences from 3 years and upwards.
Presented by Norden Farm, The Ding Foundation, Bernadette Russell and Steve Tiplady.
