The Twelve Birds of Christmas

Filled with a fantastic mix of facts, stories, songs and puppets, The Twelve Birds of Christmas is a hands-on, humorous show that brings to life Christmas bird characters in a new and engaging way.

It’s Christmas term at ‘Hatchling College’ and the bird professors are keen to help everyone learn about The Twelve Birds of Christmas, in this exciting twist on the famous festive song. Join us as they explore each of the songs featured birds and more in this immersive, fun filled family theatre performance.

The Twelve Birds of Christmas was developed in 2016 at Cast Theatre in Doncaster and was inspired by HandMade Theatre’s highly popular bird show Flying The Nest.

This successful show has also been shown at Mansfield Library in 2017 and at our very own HandMade HQ in 2018
