A handsome prince transforms into The Beast one stormy night after turning away a wicked Enchantress. Beauty, is captured by the Beast, can she melt his icy heart, break the evil spell and save the life of the handsome prince before the last rose fades and dies?
This re-telling of the French classic fairy tale is brimming with surprises and delights to remind us that beauty - and beastliness - are only skin deep.
We all want to meet people from history. The trouble is everyone is dead! So it's time to prepare yourselves for a special production of Horrible Histories featuring MORE of your favourite characters from our barmy past in this new compilation show - with a brand new scene with wordy Will Shakespeare! Find out why the Romans were revolting! Could you survive the vicious Vikings? Can evil Elizabeth entertain England? Would you party with the Puritans? Clap along with crazy King Charles! Vomit with the vile Victorians and prepare to do battle in the frightful First World War! It's history with the nasty bits left in!
It is winter. Outside it is cold and wet, but inside we are warm and cosy. In our bath full of bubbles, we play. Time for bed, we clean our teeth, close our eyes and sleep. Outside the wind howls, it gets colder and colder and colder until... The first snowflake falls from the sky...
This Christmas, Bristol Old Vic presents our very first baby show for 0-3 years in The Lantern at Colston Hall. Join us for Ice Ice Baby and discover the sights, sounds and textures of winter in a playful sensory exploration. A beautiful 30-minute theatre show suitable for babes in arms and toddlers, accompanied by carers.
Oink oink - it’s Peppa Pig! Peppa is a playful little piggy who lives with her younger brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. Through everyday adventures she plays games, makes new friends and enjoys her absolute favourite activity - jumping up and down in muddy puddles!
While out picking whortleberries with Grandmother, Dicky Bundle finds a treasure that opens the door to a beautiful, fragile world. It is the world of The Wee Folk. But the moor hears Dicky listening, and watches Dicky looking, and tells the Pixies, who don't want to share their precious secrets with a human child. Soon Dicky must strike a deal with the Queen of the Pixies, or lose the magical scarf forever. With deliciously visual story telling, Soap Soup combines beautiful puppetry, charmingly funny characters and magical music, offering audiences their most unforgettable adventure yet!
Once upon a lime... WAIT A MINUTE. That's not right! A lizard - NO - a blizzard has blown through the storytellers' snow globe muddling up all his words and creating musical mix-ups and topsy-turvy tales. With the snow storm worsening, it seems life in the snow globe has been turned upside down! How will the story teller get his tales in order? Will they ever be the same again?
Shaking together wonky tales and jamming tunes into one hilarious adventure, join Kid Carpet this Christmas as he takes over The Lantern at Colston Hall with this signature blend of theatrical chaos perfect for ages 3 to 7 years and families.

One day whilst out for a jog, Stick Man is pounced on by a playful dog. Mistaken for an ordinary stick, he is swept far away, being used for all sorts of things: from a flag mast to a cricket bat, a snowman's arm to firewood (well almost!). As his adventure unfolds, Stick Man - lost and alone - wonders if he will ever get back to the family tree. Passing through all the seasons and culminating in a joyful Christmas celebration (with an appearance by a certain portly gentleman dressed in red and white) Stick Man will delight children and their families, no matter the time of year. Three actors and a one-man-band combine with a host of colourful characters and animals to magically re-tell Stick Man's adventures. Music is played live, with a multitude of instruments.
There once was an ugly duckling ... Rejected by all and sundry until he wakes one day as a beautiful swan.
