On the night before Christmas, Emily stares out of the window, hugs her teddy and waits excitedly for the morning, while in the corner a little mouse called Eddie can't understand why only humans are allowed to celebrate and get presents. So he sets off in search of Father Christmas to find out for himself.

Will Emily get her wish? And what is that funny-shaped present sitting under the tree?

Billed as 'the magical Christmas show for all the family' the show centres on a lovable but naughty elf who is busy in Father Christmas’ workshop wrapping all the presents for delivery ... or is he? What’s he hiding? Is he secretly keeping some toys for himself. The Night Before Christmas aims to teach ages two-years-and-up the true meaning of the holiday, through songs, poems and storytelling. Children will also "receive a special gift" and be able to put their wish-lists into Santa’s post-box.
