From Friday 10 December to Tuesday 28 December the Queen’s Hall in Hexham is putting on this Christmas show for all the family. Elijah Young, the playwright, says, “It’s a modern fairytale that will give you all the Christmassy feels. Writing Remarkable Robin was so much fun, and now we’re in rehearsals I can’t wait to share it with audiences at the Queen’s Hall.”

Mark Calvert, the show’s director, told us:

“The show is set in the mines of Northumberland but they’re not the mines we all know. The message at the heart of this show is the importance of family and holding onto the idea, for as long as you dare, that magic does exist in our sometimes humdrum world. It has all of the ingredients of a great Christmas tale and the cast and creative team are working hard to give Queen’s Hall audiences a proper theatrical treat.”

And Katy Taylor, the Artistic Director/Chief Executive of Queen’s Hall Arts, said:

“We’re delighted to welcome local families back to the Queen’s Hall this Christmas with a magical festive show for the whole family set in the North East. And we’re really excited to be working with such a brilliant cast and creative team to create Remarkable Robin here in Hexham. Our audiences are in for a real treat.”
