No pantomime this Christmas? No live show to go to? Well never mind. Cat on a Piano Productions have recorded this gem just for you.

Emily is a spoilt, greedy child. Her mother is a right snobby cow. Poor old Styles – their ‘man’ – gets no love or respect, even at Christmas, He just gets to carry the shopping.

Totally overloaded with things that Emily wants wants WANTS! they spot a homeless man selling stories. Having finished telling a story to a plant, he is now telling one to a fly. But Emily wants a story NOW and so she must have one. The fly can wait.

But the storyteller doesn’t want their money. What he wants is their lives. And the story is not exactly what they expected.

Listen now to Hobb’s Christmas Adventure on Spotify (you can also listen on other platforms) to find out just what happens when Satan wants to be Santa. It’s hilarious (though I did shed a tear at the end).

Written by Chris Meekings
Directed by Emmeline Braefield
With Rebecca Daines
Kaitlin Howard
Rob Keeves
and Henry Douthwaite

The music is all performed by Amicantus Choir, led by Maddy Evans
