A Wales Millennium Centre and Big Loop production

XXXmas Carol

8 – 31 December 2021

Wolfson Studio

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.

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.
