Find the Perfect Christmas Present at the Corn Exchange!

Christmas – the most wonderful time of the year! The time for fairy lights, mince pies and mulled wine. Time for good food, presents, and, most importantly, time to spend with loved ones. This year, spend more time enjoying the festive season to the full and let us help you find the perfect present for that special someone this Christmas.

We have a wide range of feel good shows to keep all merry and bright. Give someone the chance to see the likes of Shirley Bassey, Mary Poppins and Beyoncé with a great night out full of spectacular costumes, amazing choreography and hilarious comedy from The Ladyboys of Bangkok. For ABBA fans and anyone who enjoys a little blast from the past, Dancing Queen brings on a night of feel-good 70s nostalgia as the  with full costumes and plenty of glitz! If you know any rock fans, give them to a night of songs and rock n roll stories with Bay City Roller front man Les McKeown. Whether you want to rock with Queen or Sting, or know someone who would enjoy a Big Band Extravaganza, we have plenty of musical treats on offer!

Be taken on an emotional journey with dance, physical theatre and everyday objects in Constructions of Thin Air or be taken away by a whirlwind of women, wheels, acrobatics, dance and song with HYENA. From the experimental to classic ballet, these performances are guaranteed to move you.

Like Christmas itself, theatre can be truly magical. See our stage transformed to a Translunar Paradise with a poignant, life-affirming tale without words. Be transported to a classic English Riviera retreat which soon turns into a Christie-inspired crime scene in Crimes Under the Sun, or take family and friends on a Journey to the Impossible in a comedic coming of age quest a la Stranger Things.

As Christmas is a time for family, why not go see one of our family shows and watch your kids’ eyes widen in wonder as they see Britain's barmy past brought to live with Horrible Histories. Take your family back in time and visit Dinosaur World with a chance to get up close and personal to your favourite dinosaurs. Experience some real magic with time travelling magicians Morgan and West or let Nick Sharratt teach young thriving artists how to draw the likes of Tracy Beaker, Timothy Pope and many more!

Don't let the New Year get you down and remain positive even through the toughest times with Katie Piper in her most intimate and revealing talk about her life. Keep up the cheer and share an evening of laughter at one of our comedy nights! Let comedy titan Mark Steel reassure you that Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright or get tickets to see I'm a Celebrity's  Shappi Khorsandi with her razor sharp wit and deliciously mischievous delivery. For an evening of spot-on celebrity impressions, musical comedy and stunning vocal gymnastics see award winning comedienne and Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Jess Robinson.
