A trip to see The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum is what Christmas is all about, but this version promises to be a little different, because this one will be taking place inside the British Museum!

The evening will begin in one of the Egyptian galleries where you will listen to some live music whilst enjoying some mince pies and mulled cider. You will then walk into the Great Court to watch Ballet Central perform their adaptation of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet.

You'll see Clara creep into the room to play with her brand-new nutcracker on Christmas Eve, only to get the surprise of her life -- because when the clock chimes midnight the decorated Christmas tree starts growing and growing through the ceiling! Her toy soldiers then come to life and battle with the Mouse King, before leading Clara to the Sugar Plum Fairy's home in the Kingdom of Sweets.

"Yes, Miss... a piece of pottery from 1,000 BC. Amazing." Don't forget to tick them off on your sheet, she says. "When can we can we go home, Miss?" Not for another three hours, she says. "Oh Jesus Christ, are you serious?… continued”
