Also on December 9, Blunderbus Theatre Company will be providing a stage adaptation of the best-selling book The Very Snowy Christmas with puppetry, music and songs.

Maddy Prior and The Carnival Band will provide their show Carols & Capers 2012 on Sunday December 16, with the renowned folk band providing a mix of renaissance and modern instrument.

Gervase Phinn will be at the venue on Monday December 17 with tales of life as a school inspector in the Yorkshire Dales, and a celebration of Christmas with anecdotes, poems and readings.

Christmas Crooners on Sunday December 23 will provide a fantastic night of Christmas favourites with songs from Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, and Frank Sinatra as well as lots of carols.

And where better to watch a traditional family pantomime than the fairytale setting of the beautiful Edwardian Opera House. This year’s pantomime is Peter Pan, starring Glen Davies from Bear Behaving Badly and Louis Emerick - Mick Johnson from Brookside - as Captain Hook. This runs from Wednesday December 12 to Tuesday January 1.
