A Wales Millennium Centre and Big Loop production

XXXmas Carol

8 – 23 December 2021

Wolfson Studio

Following the Welsh Government announcement that Wales is moving to Alert Level 2, subsequent guidance on social distancing measures and indoor events, and to protect our audiences, staff and production cast and crew, we regret that all performances of scheduled shows have been cancelled from 26 December until at least 15 January 2022. 

The original booker will be emailed and automatically refunded; you do not need to contact us. We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment this cancellation may have caused.

Watch Polly Amorous and friends do Dickens under the mistletoe in Cardiff’s most chaotic anti-panto ever.

Putting the 'ass' back into Christm-ass with drag, burlesque, circus and songs, XXXmas Carol will have you gagging for some stuffing.

This bizarre retelling of Charles Dickens’ yuletide nightmare is perfect if you like things a little more naughty than nice for your festive season.

Fairy Powered Productions

We’ve raided the local taverns, prisons and workhouses to bring you the most weird and wonderful artists in all of south Wales, including Rahim El Habachi, Foo Foo LaBelle, Bunmi Odumosu, Eric McGill and Geraint Owen.

Forget the Christmas past – this is a Christmas present to remember for the rest of your Christmases yet to come. You’d be a muppet to miss it.
