An expert team of festive detectives will seek out The Christmas Lobster in a quirky comedy adventure at the Farnham Maltings from December 13 to 24.

With original live music, puppetry and laughter aplenty, The Christmas Lobster is a bonkers new Christmas show that’s fun for all the family.

Join the oddballs and misfits that make up the Society for Christmas Creatures, an expert team of festive detectives, as they head off on a madcap quest to discover the true meaning of Christmas.

They’ve trekked far and wide searching for Christmas creatures of every shape and size to reveal their yuletide secrets. Now they are in Farnham for their toughest mission yet – to find the elusive Christmas Lobster. Will they reveal the true meaning of Christmas, or will its shell be too tough to crack?  

The Christmas Lobster will be the first festive offering produced in-house for Farnham Maltings, and has been created by associate company Bucket Club.

Audiences are encouraged to participate as new recruits to the Society for Christmas Creatures, joining in with society songs and keeping their eyes peeled for the lobster.

The cast features Hillary Bridgman, Sam Harris, Elliot Franklin and Ellie Showering, with music by Ellie.  

Writer and director Nel Crouch said: “I’m delighted that we’re working with Farnham Maltings to create The Christmas Lobster.

“We can’t wait to introduce the people of Farnham to our Christmas Lobster and bring plenty of festive magic along the way.”
