  • Thursday 10th December, 7:00pm - Until Sunday 3rd January, 7:00pm
Back for 2020, Forest of Forgotten Discos is a playful and inclusive Christmas show, suitable for ages 4+. Dates from Thursday 10 Dec, until Sunday 3 Jan Tickets start at £5.50 Book in advance for discounts.

There's a mystery in the forest.

Everyone has forgotten how to have fun. There's no bright lights, no music and definitely no disco.

Until one day, nine year old red runs away from home, stumbles into the forest and meets three bears.

Red and the bears embark on an adventure to solve the mystery - with some help from the audience along the way.
