“The Globe has a terrific reputation for festive family shows. For its latest, it returns to the stories of Hans Christian Andersen for inspiration. Hannah Khalil retells the story of the little fir tree growing in the forest who longs to be bigger and more beautiful, and to be chosen as one of the trees who are brought inside to be decked with gilded apples, sweetmeats and hundreds of bright candles at Christmas time. What he does not realise is it will eventually be the death of him, and he will be discarded afterwards. Khalil’s take offers an environmental perspective and Michelle Terry’s production includes carol-singing and tree-decorating in a Globe that has been turned into a magical forest.”
Review this show


The Globe Theatre returns to its roots for a magical re-imagining and re-wilding of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Fir Tree.

‘What are they doing? Why are they doing it? What will happen next?’ Asked the tree.

Bring friends, family, partners, neighbours and with a cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine in hand, join us under the wintry star-lit sky in our glorious wooden ‘O’ for a fireside dose of story, song, candlelight, and hope.
