It’s Christmas Eve, and as the snow falls gently, Little Bear

is very excited indeed. He can’t wait to see Santa!


“Santa will come just as soon as you go to sleep,” says Mummy Bear.  

But Little Bear is far too excited to sleep. So when everybody is tucked up

                                          in their beds, he finds a hiding place and

                                              waits, - for a very long time!


                                            Then suddenly... Glug, glug, glug! What's

                                          that noise?  There's somebody downstairs.  

                                       Could it be SANTA? Little Bear pops his slippers

                                    on, and tip-toes downstairs to find out for himself.

This delightful show comes to life with our usual blend of songs, music, puppetry and magical storytelling. Especially for 3 - 7 year olds, and their grown-ups.

I've Seen Santa!

by David Bedford and illustrated by Tim Warnes
