‘Tis the middle of a bleak midwinter and to raise the spirits of a fed-up country (and make himself super-popular), the Prime Minister decides he’s going to roll out an Oven Ready, World Beating, stonkingly good Christmas for one and all. And to make sure it goes as well as all the other things he’s done this year, he sets the best brains of his Government to work on organising this National Booze-Up in a Brewery and appoints the country's first ever, MINISTER FOR CHRISTMAS.
There’s going to be festive jumpers and Christmas crackers for all! This year Christmas Means Christmas as we lead the world and Take Back Control of the fun…by order of THE MINISTRY OF CHRISTMAS.
"Northern Comedy Theatre re-framed 2020 so the audience could perceive the funnier and the lighter side, because we all need the gift of comedy this Christmas to see us through the tough times."
