Once Upon A ChristmasElf and his friends have to rescue Christmas, and will be calling upon your services for help in Once Upon a Christmas, a theatrical adventure in Covent Garden for adults. This production from Look Left Look Right, the theatre company known for its interactive and immersive productions (including Above And Beyond at the Corinthia Hotel), takes you on a journey around the shops, restaurants and hidden places of Covent Garden, including the London Transport Museum. You will have encounters with some conventional and unconventional festive characters through this adults-only seasonal show written by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm and Katie Lyons.

 

About Covent Garden Piazza

This is where Covent Garden Market takes place but there's also an open-air cobbled area where miming and juggling acts can often be found. The 40ish market stalls sell a variety of quality goods: antiques, craft items, pictures and handmade clothing so it's a great place to find gifts. More about Covent Garden Piazza
