Lyric Hammersmith Theatre and Pins and Needles present
Raymond Briggs' Father Christmas

Bloomin' snow! Bloomin' reindeer! Bloomin' Christmas!

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Raymond Briggs' joyful (and at times a bit grumpy!) Father Christmas.

From the writer of The Snowman and co-produced by the Lyric Hammersmith with Olivier Award-nominated Pins & Needles, this much loved family story of Father Christmas getting ready for a night's hard work on bloomin' Christmas Eve will bring festive cheer to all ages, 0 to 90!

Join us this December for a Christmas classic.
