Christmas Adventures

Christmas Adventure - Callander House

Christmas is fast approaching and the Head Elf has just returned home from a well earned break, but things are not as ready for Santa as they should be.

The Elf Workshop needs more Christmas spirit and cheer, there's a long list of presents that need to be wrapped and ready for Santa's sleigh but the Santa clock has already started counting down, will it all be ready in time?

Perhaps, with the help of all of you Elf Interns, the elves might just make it in time for the big visit. It's going to be great fun, but don't just take our word for it.. This is such a magical event of the little ones - still some slots left -

Aladdin - The Pantomine

Aladdin Falkirk Falkirk Community Trust is delighted to be working once again with Imagine Theatre to bring this traditional family entertainment to Falkirk.

With a law decreeing that the princess can only marry a prince, and the evil Abanazar up to no good, it looks as though Aladdin’s dreams may never come true. And he’s not the only one! Aladdin’s mum Widow Twankey, has got the mixed-up Chinese laundry blues which are not helped by the fact they’re also very poor…If only Aladdin could make his fortune and then all their dreams could come true.

FTH Theatre once again promise a show packed full of spectacular scenery, breath-taking costumes, stunning special effects, fabulous song and dance routines and hilarious slap stick comedy.

Make everyone’s wishes come true this Christmas and

Ah there are so many things to do still. I'm really enjoying the Christmas period this year - you'd definitely want to take a camera on that illuminated walk.
