Recommend this event

Enjoy an evening of dance with Ballet Central, presenting a phenomenal performance of The Nutcracker, accompanied by the iconic Tchaikovsky score.

Your evening will begin in the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery (Room 4), where you will enjoy live music performances and festive treats such as mulled cider and mince pies. Ballet Central will then perform their adaptation of the Christmas classic The Nutcracker in the festively lit Great Court.

It is Christmas Eve as Clara explores the fantasy world of Drosselmeyer's toy shop. As her dreams come alive before her eyes, the dolls take her on a journey to the enchanted forest and onwards to the Kingdom of Sweets. Join us as Clara meets all the colourful characters, from the Nutcracker Prince to the Sugar Plum Fairy in this festive, sparkling, quintessential Christmas performance.

Tickets include a complimentary drink.

You will also have the opportunity to pick up a Christmas present or give the gift of Membership in the luxury Grenville Room.
