DAYS OUT IN LONDON // The Ugly Duckling at The Albany, Deptford

It's that time of year again! Every December, together with the RocknRoller Baby clan, the girls and I head to London for a little festive theatre trip... and this year is going to be no different.

This weekend we've been invited to The Albany in Deptford to see their Christmas production of the Ugly Duckling, based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale and brought to the stage by tutti fruitti and York Theatre Royal. We can't wait!

I've always loved the theatre and think it's really important that children get to experience the excitement of seeing productions live on stage too. It really is magical watching your favourite stories come to life on stage. The music! The dance routines! The costumes, set and lighting! A good production is so visually stimulating for kids (and adults too, of course! ;)).

The Albany is an amazing community arts centre with a vision similar to mine. They want to bring the theatre to everyone, especially children, and their #EveryChildTheatre campaign aims to provide every 5 year old in Lewisham with a free theatre ticket to one of their shows. The Ugly Duckling looks set to be a great choice!

We all know the classic story of inner beauty and self worth, and tutti fruitti and York Theatre Royal bring it to life with inventive puppetry, dancing and live music - everything that's great about family theatre! Just take a look at the trailer to see for yourself.

The production runs from Monday 4th December until 31st December, and tickets are just £12 for adults and £8 for kids. You can book yours here!
