This Christmas Gloucester Guildhall presents a magical adaptation of the classic tale, Pinocchio.

A festive adventure for the family, complete with live music, singing and puppetry.

Pinnochio is a wooden puppet who just wants to be a real boy.

On a quest to make this happen, he falls into a wild adventure with dodgy foxes, a fun factory, a nosy cricket, a blue fairy and a whale at the bottom of the ocean.

With an ever growing nose and a scent for adventure, will Pinocchio ever become a real boy?

Join us for an evening of family friendly fun.

Run Time: 105 mins (incl interval)
Recommended for ages 6+

Relaxed Performances

Relaxed Performances are perfect for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment – including those with an autism spectrum condition or learning disability.

What’s different?

– there will be a designated Access Staff member to welcome you on arrival

– the lights in the auditorium will be up slightly so that it’s not too dark

– the sound levels of the show will be reduced slightly, to make the performance more accessible to those who have sensory sensitivities

– the strobe light effect and pyro effect (very loud bang) will be removed from these performances

We are also offering an Access Tour prior to Relaxed Performances. These are for any audience members who feel they would benefit from coming to the theatre space in advance of the performance. Starting 1 hour prior to the performance start time, and lasting approximately 20 minutes, Access Tours are a facilitated tour of the space plus introduction to the set, costumes & props used in the show. Audience will also be able to ask any questions they may have about the performance and venue facilities in advance. (Spaces on Access Tour are limited to 20 people and bookable by calling Box Office.)

Relaxed Performances & Access Tours offered on:

Saturday 28th December, 12pm (Access Tour at 11am)

Friday 3rd January, 12pm (Access Tour at 11am)

Please note that this is a family friendly show, and therefore all performances have a relaxed atmosphere, where audiences can move about, make noise and leave for the loo when they need to! In addition, a Quiet Space is available at all performances for anyone needing to exit the performance at any time.
