The cat is back for 2023! Our eighth consecutive year performing The Mousehole Cat in Cornwall.


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 heartwarming 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.

We have flexible ticket prices for 2023

We understand things are difficult for many people.

To try and make our show as accessible as possible we are offering three ticket prices and a free ticket draw. Please book the ticket that reflects what you can afford right now. You won't be asked any questions and your ticket options won't be shared with anyone.
