Saturday 18th - Tuesday 28th December / Main House



A VIKING CHRISTMAS is a new mid-winter’s show with live music, spell-binding real magic, action and laughter, set in the north of England, produced by Queen’s Hall Arts and written by North East playwright Gary Kitching. 

A magical, mythical tale from the frozen land of the Nordic Kings, evil wizards and the Great Warriors of the Kingdom of Northumbria. 

Join Lotte, a brave little girl, on her mid-winters adventure as she travels through the ice-covered kingdom of perilous, mystical placed and mysterious beings, to the land of high castles and dark places, to the home of the Red Caps and the scary All-Father. 

Weaving tales of the north, newly told, discover a new Viking twist on the Christmas story this December. 




Made in Northumberland for the people of Northumberland
