Crumble’s Search for Christmas: West Yorkshire Playhouse’s enchanting Christmas adventure for 2-6 year olds

If you’re looking for a festive outing for little ones, Crumble’s First Christmas at the West Yorkshire Playhouse is perfect for getting you in the mood for Christmas.
Held in the courtyard theatre – which is big enough to impress little eyes but small enough not to overwhelm – it tells a story of friendship and bravery set in and beyond Crumble the woodland creature’s secret burrow.
When Crumble and his family settle down to hibernate for the winter, she can’t get to sleep and decides to venture out above ground to see winter for herself.
She then meets new friends – owls, a squirrel and a snow queeen-like winter herself – and learns all about the magic of Christmas.
Crumble’s First Christmas is aimed at children aged 2-6, but there were many children younger and older in the audience on our visit. I’d say my little ones, at 4 and 8, really enjoyed it and are the perfect age to sit and watch the action on stage and be captivated by it.

Florence, 4, was on the edge of her seat and especially loved the twinkly lights on the set, the animal costumes and the warmth of the characters. It was the first time I’d taken her to the Playhouse and can’t wait to take her again.
Sam, 8, really got involved with the story as well and liked watching the set and how they changed it between scenes!
I think all the kids liked being able to shout out at the end too, to help find a lost Crumble.
I love the West Yorkshire Playhouse as a venue – we usually walk into Leeds for something to eat before or after a show – and there are plenty of other shows going on over Christmas for families.
One that has just launched is the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, which runs through to January and I’d love to take my eight year old. You can see a little video of Crumble’s  Search for Christmas below too!
