Excruciating, Banal, Insipid

See it if You wanna distract toddlers and don't mind getting value for money.

Entertaining, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if You want a fun, festive family-friendly show

Don't see it if It's aimed at families so if you're a group of adults, I'd give this a miss (or bring along the children in your family!)

See it if If you have kids or are a kid heart. If you love immersive Christmas experiences that are interactive, light hearted & visually beautiful

Cute, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever

See it if You love Christmas and are going with family/children. As adults we still enjoyed the magic, but it’s definitely aimed at younger children

Don't see it if You don’t like Christmas, don’t like immersive performance, want to hear everything (we struggled to hear over the music)

Time Out London

“My kids found it thoroughly delightful...My biggest gripe is the price. It certainly feels out of whack with the price of most London kids’ theatre. Perhaps this is what they need to charge to cover their costs, but for what is essentially a sweet little children’s show, the sheer expense takes some of the sparkle off ‘Wishmas’.”

“A great deal of money, talent and imagination has clearly been hurled at this project... it is entrancing for kids and will be a useful entertainment for families who feel like doing something festive but don’t fancy spending a couple of hours in a theatre.”

All That Dazzles (UK)

“ ‘Wishmas’ has been beautifully designed to create a world in itself. Importantly though, a lot of care and detail has gone into crafting the story so every element serves a purpose and doesn't feel like it is solely included to kill time. As a piece of theatre it was impressive how easy it was to immerse yourself into the world. Getting the tone just right so it is entertaining for children but never crosses a line to scare them, it captures the Christmas spirit perfectly.”

“It’s not easy to keep kids entertained for even a short period like an hour, but it was clear to see that Wishmas fully grabbed their attention...’Wishmas’ feels like a real treat and the attention to detail on every part of the journey makes this a Christmas experience like no other.”

“The full "Wishmas" experience finishes with a bauble making session, which is enjoyable and a smart way to capture the children’s own wishes. Father Christmas meet and greets are also available...Every single member of the "Wishmas" cast and crew are incredibly kind, helpful and engaging; really elevating the immersive experience to the next level. Perfect for anyone who’s ever made a wish, "Wishmas" will fill your Christmas bucket with joy and ignite your imagination.”

“The set design is impeccable, so colourful and glittery, it really does feel magical...There are great festive characters such as Nutmeg and Treacle, and the actors do a wonderful job of creating a magical atmosphere. The costumes and make-up are great and really add to the whole experience.”
