Festive Show

Sleighing It

7pm age 5+, 9pm age 16+

We know how sh*t hot the talent in Plymouth is and how 2021 hasn't been quite the year we thought it would, so we’re putting on a festive show at Barbican Theatre to close 2021 with a big festive, glittery, bang! 

Sleighing It will feature professional and emerging artists from the Plymouth and Devon/Cornwall area performing in a light hearted festive cabaret style show. It's the perfect way to celebrate the amazing talent in our little corner of the UK that's changing the world!
Check out the  Line Up for each Sleighing It show below (more info such as bios and pics for each will be added daily)

Covid 19 Safety 

The health, safety and comfort of our audiences, colleagues and performers are very important to us.
We have a number of measures in place to ensure your comfort and safety. Enhanced hygiene procedures are in place.  Hand sanitising stations are positioned throughout the public spaces for audience members to use and we ask that you do so frequently. The theatre will be aired out between rehearsals and performances (for added covid safety) which can mean the space can feel a tiny bit more chilly even after we shut the doors. Therefore we suggest you wear an extra layer to be safe!
In line with new regulations issued on 8 December, unless exempt, all audience members are required to wear face masks from as soon as they arrive at the theatre and throughout their visit (including while watching the performance).
All Barbican Theatre team members will be wearing face masks (unless exempt) and will be regularly lateral flow tested. This includes the team front of house and back stage, and performers.
We continue to monitor the latest guidance from the UK Government.
Please do not attend if you
  • Are displaying any Covid-19 symptoms
  • Have had a positive PCR or lateral flow test within 10 days
  • You’ve recently arrived into the UK and have not received the results of your PCR test
  • You’ve been instructed to self-isolate.
  • If you have any questions about your tickets, refunds or exchanges due to covid-related issues please email our Audience Experience Manager, Robyn, at info@barbicantheatre.co.uk
