THE CBeebies Christmas show is coming to Somerset.

Strode Theatre in Street is delighted to announce a treat for young cinema-goers: for the first time ever, this December.

The show comes to the big screen at cinemas all over the country, including the Studio at Strode Theatre, on Saturday, December 15.

This festive season, laugh and sing along with your favourite CBeebies stars and be part of a fabulous interactive show for all the family. CBeebies’ favourite personalities are lined up to star in this unique adaptation of the original Hans Christian Andersen tale, Thumnelina.

In addition, cinema-goers will see an exclusive show, “Justin’s Countdown to Christmas”, starring the much-loved Justin Fletcher (Something Special).

Thumbelina follows the adventures of a thumb-sized girl in an oversized world of woodland creatures and giant plants as she tries to find out the truth about her identity. Born inside a flower, she marvels at the world around her but quickly realises she doesn’t know what, where or who she is. She has no name and is lost and alone, with only a dream to fly like a butterfly. She is drawn to the warmth and excitement of a nearby animal party where bugs, spiders, toads, and mice are celebrating the End of Summer and Start of Winter. But the party is not what it seems…!

The 60s influenced music will bring the whole show to life with new songs guaranteed to get the audience singing and dancing. The cast features many of CBeebies’ most popular actors and presenters including Justin Fletcher, Ben Faulks and Andy Day.

The CBeebies Christmas Show will be on the Strode Studio screen on December15 at 2pm. Tickets are £9 for grown-ups, £7 for little ones (up to age 16), available at or from Strode Theatre’s Box Office on 01458 442846 (10am – 2pm Mon-Sat).
