There’s a magical tale lined up for the little ones at Letchworth Arts Centre next week.

Children aged two to five will be captivated by Santa In Love, with three performances scheduled on Friday, December 19.

There are shows full of games, giggles and favourite Christmas songs planned at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 4.15pm – and there will also be a meet and greet with Santa that includes free presents and picture opportunities.

Critics have hailed it as a brilliant production that adults will love just as much as the young ones – tickets are £8.50 on 01462 670788 or

On the same evening master raconteur Keith Baldwin will be presenting an evening of festive tales, anecdotes and readings with the unpromising title Bah Humbug And Other Christmas Greetings. Don’t let that put you off, the show is guaranteed to warm even the sternest heart in an evening that includes mulled wine and mince pies.

Keith’s Christmas shows have become a tradition at the venue and aim to offer a great starting point to the festive season.

Tickets are £8 (£7 concessions), including refreshments – again, call the venue on 01462 670788 to book yours, or reserve them online at
