A Child’s Christmas, Poems and Tiger Eggs by Dylan

A Child’s Christmas, Poems and Tiger Eggs by Dylan


See award-winning Welsh dance company Ballet Cymru [] perform a sparkling and refreshing new ballet this November.

Ballet Cymru presents a timeless interpretation of the Dylan Thomas [] classic _A Child’s Christmas In Wales_, narrated by Welsh icon Cerys Matthews [] of Catatonia. Step into the imagination of a genius and follow the company on a journey full of snow, cats and dramatic dance. 

Featuring choreography by Darius James and Amy Doughty, expressive costumes and original music, Ballet Cymru brings this story to life through a unique blend of classical technique and storytelling. 

AGE GUIDANCE: 5+. Whilst this production is not a children’s show, it will delight children and adults alike.
