The Polar Bears Go Up

Join us this Christmas for The Polar Bears Go Up, a fun and highly enjoyable Christmas treat for young adventurers aged 2-5.

The Polar Bears are moving up in the world.

They’ve lost their balloon and they need to get it back.

It’s time to get up, step up, climb up, jump up.

One thing’s for sure, the only way is up!

These lovable Polar Bears are intrepid explorers, famous for their wild expeditions. This time they’ll be climbing trees, jumping on clouds and reaching for the stars as they race up to space. Of course, they’ll stop for sandwiches on the way!

Note: The Polar Bears Go Up is non-verbal and deaf friendly.

Babe in arms: For productions that are not created for or aimed at babies we offer a free babes in arms ticket for those under one year old. A ticket is still required and is subject to availability. To book this online, please select the ‘adult and baby under 1’ ticket.
