Train travelling in snow
We’ve rounded up the best shows and events on Christmas Eve

THE POLAR EXPRESS

Discovery Museum, Newcastle

0191 232 6789

www.discoverymuseum.org.uk

Can you believe The Polar Express was only released in 2004? In the last 12 years it has become something of a Christmas institution as year after year we journey to the North Pole with brave Billy. This year take your family along to see it shown on the big screen in the Great Hall.

 

JUNGLE BOOK

Queen’s Hall, Hexham

01434 652477

www.queenshall.co.uk

There’s a hapless boy child, a lovable bear, a sneaky python and a cunning panther – that can only mean one thing, Rudyard Kipling’s beloved Jungle Book comes to Hexham this year. All together now, I’m the king of the swingers yeah...

 

THE SNOWMAN

Sage Gateshead

0191 443 4661

www.sagegateshead.com

We’ll all be walking in the air when the Royal Northern Sinfonia bring The Snowman to life this Christmas. A North East tradition, this spectacular event sees our fantastic orchestra accompany a live screening of Raymond Briggs’ beloved Christmas film. We love it.

 

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK

Customs House, South Shields

0191 454 1234

www.customshouse.co.uk

You know the story – a boy, a giant, a beanstalk and a dancing cow – but watch as Jack and the Beanstalk takes a North East twist at Customs House this year. We’re expecting tomfoolery and plenty of local gags – let’s face it, even the cow is called Doddington.

 

CHRISTMAS AT BEAMISH

Beamish Museum

0191 370 4000

www.beamish.org.uk

Get ready for Christmas Victorian style – we’re talking festive food, traditional stalls, steam train rides and ice skating. What more could you want? Father Christmas will be making an appearance and there’s a host of gorgeous reindeers too. Dickens would be proud.

 

8 DECEMBER–8 JANUARY

ALADDIN

Middlesbrough Theatre 

01642 815181

www.middlesbroughtheatre.co.uk

Soap stars aplenty are venturing to Middlesbrough this festive season with Andy Moss from Hollyoaks and Ricky Groves from Eastenders completing the cast for this all-singing, all-dancing production of Aladdin. Get ready for genies in lamps and a whole lot of laughs.
