Christmas in Leicester Square 2018
Briefs to headline programme also featuring Showstoppers, Frisky & Mannish and Gingzilla
November 9th 2018 – January 5th, 2019

Underbelly are pleased to announce their third season of festive events with Christmas in Leicester Square.

Briefs are this year’s headliners with their first ever UK Christmas show. Briefs will also be presenting festive editions of their acclaimed kids show Brat Kids Carnival and their legendary club night Club Briefs.

Frisky & Mannish will also be presenting their first ever Christmas show after a sold-out 10th anniversary special on the Southbank this summer, giving all your favourite Christmas songs a hilarious makeover in some of the most spectacularly festive costumes ever to grace the Spiegeltent.

Other shows announced include an extravaganza from the world’s only drag tribute to Girls AloudGals Aloud, House of Burlesque with The Burlesque Carol Concert and one of the breakout stars of the Edinburgh Fringe, the beautiful Drag Queen Gingzilla.

Showstoppers are also back with their acclaimed Christmas Kids Show – a totally improvised musical for all the family.

For the kids, Monski Mouse’s Christmas Baby Disco will get parents, babies and younger kids alike bopping along to a special mix of Christmas classics and kids and dance favourites.

In Janauary, there’s Shakespearience: a bedazzling swagger through the Bard’s greatest works for all the family, and the perfect introduction to some of the greatest theatre in the English language.

Another hit with the kids, returning after huge success last year, is Santa’s Grotto – open every day until Christmas Eve. This special North Pole experience will feature Father Christmas himself.

Winter Windows will also return – a unique exhibition in partnership with local schools which will see pupils design stained glass windows with the best being exhibited around the north and west perimeter of the Leicester Square site.

In addition to this amazing seasonal entertainment, Leicester Square will be transformed into a wintery haven with a beautiful European-style Christmas Market with over 25 different stalls featuring a range of fascinating Christmas curios, sumptuous food and delicious drinks.
