The Greatest Show on Earth, by Michael Kirkup and Derek Hobbs. This is a hugely tuneful musical production of the Christmas story set in the context of a circus. Don’t miss it whatever you do. There will be a matinee performance on Saturday afternoon. It will also remind you that Christmas does not finish on Boxing Day!
