Kay Harker is on the train home from school for the holidays. But this Christmas will be different. His parents are dead and in the snow, the wolves are running... On the train he meets an old magician, Cole Hawlings, who charges Kay with protecting his Box of Delights, a wondrous device with time travelling powers. But when the old man mysteriously disappears, Kay faces the fight of his life to protect the Box, and with it, the people he loves. For Cole's nemesis, the wicked sorcerer Abner Brown will stop at nothing to get his hands on the Box. The Box of Delights
is a magical and festive adventure like no other, in which one boy must enlist the help of the heroes of the past, to defeat the evil in his present. The very future of Christmas itself depends upon him...Performers Theo Ancient, Nigel Betts, Mark Extance, Safiyya Ingar, Tom Kanji, Molly Roberts, Samuel Simmonds, Sara Stewart.
