Cornwall's longest-running festive show 'Christmas. Time.' is back at The Poly in Falmouth on the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of December.

Written and performed by Daniel Richards and Ciaran Clarke, and directed by Simon Harvey (o-region, Kneehigh) Christmas. Time. is a musical comedy for all the family, and year after year proves a festive and fantastically funny Christmas offering from Near-ta Theatre.


Charlie and Toby are feeling low, and why wouldn't they? It's Christmas Day and they're serving time at His Majesty's pleasure. But why shouldn't they be having a Merry Christmas in spite of their incarceration? What's stopping them from creating Christmas around them? Absolutely nothing! And so they set off on their festival of carols, Claus, Christ, and custody…

Join them on a fantastical adventure through Dickens, pantomime, musicals, Christmas dinner, and Christmas films! See as they build a wonderfully Merry Christmas around them with songs, snowmen, and lots of laughs in this truly festive show that puts the 'cell' firmly back in 'celebration'!

Ticket prices range from £12/10 or you can get 5 x tickets for £50, a £1 Poly Fund payment is added to each ticket sold.
