Christmas. Time.

Near-ta TheatreThis event has now finished

Near-ta Theatre have teamed up with acclaimed Filmmaker Brett Harvey to bring you their cult classic, 'Christmas. Time.' in digital form

Bringing bucketloads of Christmas spirit straight to your home this new, digital version of the company’s iconic show, will entertain, amuse and delight. (Let’s face it we all need a good laugh this year more than ever).


Charlie and Toby are feeling low, and why wouldn’t they? It’s Christmas Day and they’re serving time at Her 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 and Ciaran Clarke, and directed by Simon Harvey (o-region, Kneehigh), with the digital version being funded by Feast Cornwall, Christmas. Time. is a festive and fantastically funny musical comedy for all the family!
