WHAT a relief to hear the news that Worcestershire is a tier 2 county and that the Swan Theatre and our neighbouring theatres will be able to reopen once again.

We have a wonderful selection of events leading up to Christmas including our first screenings, using our newly installed equipment, so do get the last remaining tickets for 42nd Street or the Nutcracker which is sure to put you in the festive mood.

Due to the pandemic there have been limited opportunities of programming, artists are unable to take the risk to mount new productions or risk touring in the current climate, but we are delighted to be able to present a selection of shows.

Santa’s Christmas cracker will entertain your youngest family members and offer the chance to meet with Santa and receive a gift!

Next up is Santa’s Christmas Party, which we are co-producing with Maple Tree Entertainment; the production is cast by an impressive group of performers who have been in shows such as Buddy, Kinky Boots and Footloose, it is sure to delight the whole family.

We do, of course, cater for everyone at our venues and we are also delighted to be able to offer the ever-popular Green Matthews with their Mid-Winter Revels, presented back in September at the Royal Porcelain Works Courtyard, where they sold out. They will enchant us this time with their plethora of instruments, Christmas carols and traditional winter folk songs.

To top off, what is turning out to be a rather Christmassy Swan season are two opportunities for Christmas comedy events with LOL comedy and Solve-a-long-a-murder-she-wrote (the Christmas edition)! Do come and see us this December!
