Blue Apple presents

A King’s City Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the town,
A pilgrim walks silent with our own ancient Crown…

The start of the Christmas period in Winchester is marked by many special things and one of them is the Blue Apple winter show; this year we take our inspiration from the city itself.

Come and join our timeless Pilgrim as he takes on the task of reminding our very own King Alfred what a remarkable place his city is. The king has stood and looked on from above for so long that he needs someone to refresh his jaded eyes.

Tender, bittersweet but ultimately uplifting, A King’s City Christmas is a love letter to an extraordinary place. Told with Blue Apple’s unique charm, wit and sense of mischief this piece is the perfect way to kick-start your festivities with a spring in your step and joy in your heart.
“Tonight we’ll play you the voices of this city’s choir, the tiles in the mosaic that makes up this place. Come along now and we’ll spend this night together in search of the soul of a city.”

Empowering people through theatre, dance and film

Blue Apple was founded in 2005. Through the skills and enhanced confidence gained through the arts we seek to change the way people see and understand learning disability.

Further, to raise the ceiling of expectation for people with learning disabilities.

We provide a programme of dance & drama sessions tailored to individual needs for over 70 people. All activity is designed to build and sustain improved confidence and physical and mental wellbeing while, at the same time, producing exciting, engaging and inspiring art.
