Completing a festive line-up that has something for everyone is Sandi Toksvig’s Christmas Cracker, a cabaret show in Royal Festival Hall that, for ten days only, features a glittering array of stars from the worlds of music, magic and comedy, starring the legendary Ronnie Corbett.
Hosted by queen of the quips Sandi Toksvig and a house band, the show is a joyous mix of music and comedy. It features festive sing-a-longs and, in time-honoured tradition, a re-working of a much-loved period drama in the form of a hilarious romp through Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, written by actress and Fascinating Aida comedienne Dillie Keane.
Created by Sandi Toksvig and Southbank Centre Artistic Director Jude Kelly, and directed by Fiona Laird, who directed Stephen Fry’s Cinderella at the Old Vic in 2007 starring Sandi Toksvig, each performance will have the same format, although star guests will vary through the show’s ten-day run.
