The Mousehole Cat
by Antonia Barber
adapted by Alan M Kent
We are thrilled to be returning to Mousehole again this Christmas!
Our magical puppet and live action production is performed annually in the heart of Mousehole alongside the village’s famous Christmas light display.
Based on the well-known Cornish legend this uniquely heart warming story of the friendship between a fearless fisherman and his devoted cat will warm the cockles of everyone's hearts... almost as much as an ‘efty portion of stargazy pie!
This magical show has an hour long run time allowing families to soak up the atmosphere of Cornwall’s most famous Christmas light display and enjoy a live performance all in one evening.
11 - 24 December 2021
Solmon Browne Memorial Hall, Mousehole

What COVID precautions will be in place?
All audience members over the age of 11 will be asked to wear a mask
We have reduced our audience size to 2/3 of our pre-pandemic capacity
The show will be performed "end-on" (the audience all facing one way) rather than "in-the-round" (the audience all around the stage) to allow for a bigger distance between the performers and the audience
There will be a minimum of a 1.2m gap from the edge of the stage to the front row
Windows in the auditorium will be kept open to allow for increased ventilation
Audience members will be allowed to leave through two exits at the end of the performance to reduce crowding
Company members will be taking Lateral Flow Tests daily
Our box office team will be operating behind a screen
Check-in will be contactless
Audience members will not be asked to leave their seats during the show
We are very happy to answer any questions you may have about our COVID precautions. Please email us on email@example.com.
