Christmas with the Hobs

CaroleW Productions




This December, Alnwick Playhouse, Maltings Berwick and Queen’s Hall Arts Centre invite you to let the Hobs into your home for a magical Christmas adventure made in Northumberland.

Christmas with the Hobs is a brand new festive animation for the whole family. Available to view from 12 December to 31 December.

It’s Christmas Eve at Nana’s house and Tyler and Eliza are waiting for Dad to pick them up to start the celebrations. But when plans change, they must work together to create a Christmas to remem- ber, with the help of their new found friends, the Hobs! Join them as they discover what really makes Christmas special, with mishaps and mayhem along the way. With an accompanying pack full of fun, festive activities to try at home, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Written by Becci Sharrock, Christmas with the Hobs is illustrated by Sheila Graber who worked on animation for the children’s TV series Paddington in the 1980s, with original music by North East singer songwriter Bridie Jackson. The cast are Joseph Casling, Jude Nelson, Lewis Jobson, Viktoria Kay and Jacqueline Phillips, who will also direct.
