Theatre Christmas gifts

A trip to the theatre will always be a winner when it comes to gifts. So why not buy your nearest and dearest tickets to see a show for Christmas?

The Central and Brook Theatres have a great line-up for 2020. This includes comedy, family fun, musicals and kids shows. There’s lots to choose from. Plus, we do not charge booking fees, making it a great value Christmas present too.

Whether you book online or through our box office, your tickets will come wrapped in a special Christmas ticket holder, meaning one less present to wrap up.

Or if you are not sure what show they’d like, why not buy a gift card instead? Call 01634 338 338 or visit the box office to find out more.
