Princesses and more as Feckenham welcomes magical Christmas show

Redditch Editorial 4th Dec, 2017   0

THERE’S a chance to get into the Christmas spirit a couple of weeks early when Northumberland Theatre Company bring their magical production of ‘The Princess and The Goblin’ to Feckenham Village Hall on Sunday, December 10 at 7pm.

This is the exciting adventure story of Princess Irene who has been promised as the bride of the goblin king’s son – except he hasn’t asked her yet.

Cue fun and frantic shenanigans as the goblins try to steal Irene away.

There are catchy songs, silly dance routines and lots of fun for everyone age five to 500 (goblins live very long lives).

In fact it’s a colourful and lively show guaranteed to get youngsters of all ages in the mood for the festivities.

NTC, working with ‘Shindig’ have brought their shows to Feckenham before – and they don’t do things by halves.

This one will have dazzling scenery, lighting and special effects. The company will also be providing rugs and cushions near the stage for small children – or very tired parents… or very old goblins.

The show has been brought to Redditch’s rural outpost by Shindig – the county’s performing arts scheme – bringing Live Arts to the doorstep.

The show is sponsored by Arts Council England, Worcestershire County Council and Redditch Borough Council.

NTC is one of the UK’s top touring outfits and dedicated to bringing theatre to the heart of communities.

They work mostly on their home turf but have broken into their 40 date tour to travel to the Midlands for just two performances for Shindig – you won’t see this lovely show anywhere else south of the Tyne!

The Princess and The Goblin is at Feckenham Village Hall on Sunday, December 10 and it’s curtain up at 7pm. Doors open at 6.30pm and there’s a licensed bar for parents and refreshments for the kids.

Tickets are £11 adults / £8 Under 12s from the Village Shop and The Rose & Crown in Feckenham or book online at or call 0333 666 3366.
