Theatre // Coming up // Christmas. Time. (Relaxed Performance)
21 December

Christmas. Time. (Relaxed Performance)

Bringing bucket loads of Christmas spirit once again this December is Near-ta Theatre’s cult festive comedy, and Cornwall’s longest running festive show—celebrating its 15th year!—Christmas. Time.

Charlie and Toby are feeling low, and why wouldn’t they? It’s Christmas Day and they’re serving time at His Majesty’s pleasure. But why shouldn’t they be having a Merry Christmas in spite of their incarceration? What’s stopping them from creating Christmas around them? Absolutely nothing! And so they set off on their festival of carols, Claus, Christ and custody…

Join them on a fantastical adventure through Dickens, pantomime, musical, Christmas dinner and Christmas films! See as they build a wonderfully Merry Christmas around them with songs, snowmen and lots of laughs in this truly festive show that puts the ‘cell’ firmly back in ‘celebration’!

Written and performed by Daniel Richards (‘Owdyado Theatre) and Ciaran Clarke (Wosson Cornwall), and directed by Simon Harvey (o-region, Kneehigh) Christmas. Time. is a musical comedy for all the family, and year after year proves a festive and fantastically funny Christmas offering from Near-ta Theatre!

What is a relaxed show?

In this case a relaxed show means that:

Lights will be on low during the whole show

Sound effects will be turned down

Unallocated seating

Limited seating (100 seats available)

Doors will open earlier than usual

If you require any accommodations to be made please get in touch at and we can see what is possible. 

I'm afriad at this point in time we do not have any wheelchair access to the event area.
