Festive missions rely on your support

This Christmas, children and their grown-ups are invited to take part in two festive missions.

Jump aboard a state-of-the-art submarine and help rescue a stranded bird in Antarctica in Emergency Story Penguin at Sheffield’s Crucible Studio from December 12 to January 2.

Grumpy fairies and fir trees behaving very strangely will prompt audiences to join in a race against time to salvage festive spirit in 59 Minutes to Save Christmas at the Crucible Theatre until December 24.

Tickets £10 from Sheffield Theatres’ box office, call 0114 249 6000 or visit www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk
