Santa's Christmas Party! Epsom Playhouse
Saturday 8 - Monday 24 December

Jack the Beanstalk - Epspm Playhouse
Friday 14 December - Sunday 6 January
The pantomimes at the Epsom Playhouse just get better and better. This year it’s a ‘giant’ of a show; packed full of slapstick, corny jokes, stunning dancers, beautiful singing and real panto mayhem! This ‘traditional modern’ Jack and the Beanstalk promises something for everyone, a real family treat!
Christmas Memorial Service - Epsom Cemetery Chapel
Friday 14 December; 11am
A service for those who like to remember lost loved ones as Christmas approaches. This service is not a traditional religious service though, there will be some familiar Christmas music.
