What to expect

Please be aware of government guidelines before setting off.

Government Guidelines
  • Santa is coming to the Riverside Studios this festive season and he’s determined to deliver a special Christmas present to Sarah.  
  • Don’t miss this brilliant stage adaptation of Rod Campbell’s much-loved picture book, Dear Santa Live.
  • Directed by Tim Wallers, the production is the ideal introduction for children aged two and above.
  • Expect audience participation, music, laughter and plenty of Christmas cheer!
  • Every child will receive a gift as well as get the opportunity to meet Santa himself after the show.

If you are searching for an extra special Christmas show for your children this year, this is the perfect production for you and your family. Get into the festive spirit this year with all the family at the brilliant Riverside Studios in Hammersmith to watch a stage production of Author Rod Campbell’s bestselling book Dear Santa.

Santa is determined to give Sarah the most wonderful Christmas present, but he doesn’t get it right immediately. Enlisting the help of his cheeky elf, Santa eventually settles on the perfect gift for Sarah on Christmas Eve. The show is the perfect treat for kids under the age of six and is the perfect introduction to theatre and for those who are still believers in Christmas magic! It has all of the ingredients of Campbell’s ingeniously charming and simple style with Christmas songs and plenty of audience participation. And as an added festive treat, children will each receive a special present of their own, as well as the extra special opportunity to meet Father Christmas after the show in this grotto.

Dear Santa will be an unforgettable fun-filled family show for this festive season!
