By Terry Deary
It is Christmas 2013 and something is not quite right.
In fact something is hideously, hopelessly, horribly wrong.
As children wait for Father Christmas and all the presents are beneath the tree, a fat old man slides down their chimney and nicks the lot! Can this be the real meaning of old Saint Nick?
But by chance one small boy spots the snatcher and sets off to save Christmas - from puritan parties to Tudor feasts, pulling crackers with Charles Dickens and meeting St Nicholas himself!
Don’t miss this horribly adventurous Christmas treat for the whole family from Derby Theatre and Birmingham Stage Company!
