Looking for a magical Christmas for all the family?

Make memories that’ll last a lifetime with trip to the London Coliseum this Christmas to see the Nutcracker Delights.

Running from 17th December 2020 – 3rd January 2021, over 100 dancers from the English National Ballet bring the Nutcracker to life with exquisite dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky’s popular score played live.

Set on a sparkling Christmas Eve in a frost-dusted Edwardian London, Clara receives an enchanted Nutcracker as a gift. Together, they discover a magical world where she battles with the Mouse King and meets a handsome stranger.

As the air grows colder, Clara and her valiant Nutcracker take a hot air balloon ride across London to the glistening Land of Snow where a puppet theatre comes to life with dancers from around the world.

From the sound of the orchestra tuning up, to the final bows and cheers, a trip to English National Ballet at the London Coliseum is an unforgettable Christmas treat.

English National Ballet’s Nutcracker returns for four weeks only, following sold out performances in 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 – book early and make Nutcracker part of your holiday celebrations.
