THE CHRISTMAS SHOW
Wow! What a year 2020 has been! After everything that has happened we are just beyond excited to have been able to bring to you The Christmas Show Online.
Now in its third year, Darley Dance Productions’ Christmas Show is a fun, festive variety show with something for everyone.
It’s a fun show packed full of singing, dancing a bit of comedy thrown in and all in beautiful costumes.
There’s things to keep the kids entertained, things to make Mum and Dad smile and things to get Granny and Grandad singing along. There’s even a visit from the big man himself!
In 2020 instead of bringing professional talent to a local stage we brought them right into your living room! Our dedicated team of professional singers and dancers are always happy to share the most exciting time of year with you and bring a little extra sparkle to your Christmas Countdown.
2020 was completely different but we were absolutely determined that we wanted to do The Christmas Show. We wanted to bring something festive and magical to our audiences, we wanted to give much needed work to our performers and we wanted to end this tough year on a high for everyone.
Let’s be honest for a moment here. As we hadn’t worked all year then we had no money so our only option if we wanted to do the show was to reach out to the community around us and ask for help.
We thought about giving up and waiting to see what 2021 would bring but we decided to give it one last try!
We launched our crowdfunder at the start of October and set our sights on £10,000. We decided to go all in as we simply couldn’t do our show with any less than £10,000. This meant that we had to hit our £10,000 target by Nov 5th 8pm or we would refund every penny and our show would be cancelled.
I’m thrilled to say that we hit that target!

We are now in our stretch target. The £10,000 is amazing and has given us the opportunity to go out and film our show and get it online for everyone to see. It has looked after our present and ended 2020 on a high and we are so grateful.
Our stretch target will look after our future. It will give us an opportunity to look at 2021 and give us chance to move forward with our business, past this crazy time and survive!
Thank you to everyone who has already donated. We are so gratful for every penny.
From December 11th to January 3rd our show was available to watch online.
People watched the show from all over and all from the comfort of their own homes and best of all they got to choose the price of their ticket!
Everyone could donate to our crowdfunder, any donation, any size, got them the link to our show.
THANK YOU to everyone who donated, watched our show and supported us in 2020! We’ve so lucky to have an amazing crowd behind us!
We hope you enjoyed the show.
