The Royal Court Christmas show is back baby! You want stupid jokes? We've got 'em. You want the best live music in town? We've got that too. Rude words, drinks at your table and great meals before the show? We've got it all covered! The Royal Court Christmas shows are deffo not for kids so leave them at home and treat yourselves to a great night out! Jack's mum is fuuumin'. That little divvy has taken their only cow to St John's and instead of selling him for cash, he brought back a handful of beans. Then, to make matters worse, he lashed them into the back yard and this massive weed has grown up through her bespoke Italian paving stones and put a big hole in her butterfly bush. But Jack's problems are only just beginning. After legging it up the new tree to get away from his mum, he's found something even more terrifying. A fearsome giant is after him because Jack was trying to pinch his bird. What the fee fi fo fum is going on? The creative team behind the last four years' worth of Christmas madness are all in place. The cast will be full of your Royal Court favourites so you are guaranteed a great night out. Remember, the Christmas show is always a sell out so if you want the best seats then get booking now!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
