A festive labyrinth of theatrical interconnecting tales, fusing puppetry, immersive binaural sound design and stories for all ages, inspired by Jim Henson 80’s adventure tales. 


Tales of Betwixtmass is a delightful theatre experience that puts children and families at the heart of storytelling as co-creators of a theatrical, imaginative world. A magical Christmas treat for children and adults alike. Presents for ages 0-12 years are included in the ticket price. 


Join us on an adventure through the gardens and woodland of Standen House; Christmas elves, faeries and critters have taken up residence in the trees, whizzing past your ears. Magical splosions are afoot as we search for Father Christmas.
