The Bear by Raymond Briggs comes to Norden Farm

We're excited to bring you The Bear this Christmas - an adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ much-loved children’s story (creator of The Snowman). The show runs from Tuesday 26 November until Sunday 29 December.

The Bear is the story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart-warming tale is one of imagination and growing up. With stunning puppetry, catchy songs and lots of laughs - it’s an unforgettable experience for the whole family!

The production comes to Norden Farm in an adaptation by Pins and Needles Productions.

Performances of The Bear on Saturday 30 November at 11am and Saturday 28 December at 11am are Relaxed. These are ideal for children with SEND. Everyone is welcome to join us for this friendly format. The house lights are kept on, and audience members can come and go as they please.

Catch this playful and enchanting show for children and grown-ups alike, over the festive season. With free onsite parking, free Wi-Fi and a family friendly café bar, it’s the perfect place for a Christmas trip to the theatre.
