Shakespeare's Globe's re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s festive fairy tale returns

“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.”

Tickets from £5


In a beautiful wood stands a little Fir Tree. Kept company by woodland creatures, it enjoys a peaceful life. But the Fir Tree is curious. It dreams of a world outside the forest, yearning for adventure. What will happen when it grows up? Where will it go? And will it be everything the Fir Tree wished for?

Let imaginations run wild as the Globe transforms into a hand-crafted forest. Meet friendly puppets made of cardboard – and make your own to bring to the performance! Take part in carol-singing and tree decorating, and keep cosy with a hot chocolate or mulled wine under the wintry star-lit sky.

Globe resident writer Hannah Khalil‘s new re-telling of this classic fairy tale, directed by Michelle Terry, is suitable for all ages, big or small. So, join us this Christmas for a wonderfully festive dose of storytelling, puppetry, song and hope.

Tickets from £5
