The Christmas Show

Now in its fifth year and being performed LIVE for the first time since 2019, Darley Dance Productions’ Christmas Show is a fun, festive variety show with something for everyone.

This year for ONE NIGHT ONLY we will be LIVE at Melbourne Assembly Rooms on December 11th 2022.

But we are not abandoning our home viewers as our show will also be available ONLINE. With highlights from our live show and brand new numbers filmed exclusively for our online audiences.

Full of singing, dancing and festive cheer, The Christmas Show has something for all the family. From festive faves and fairytales gone wrong to yuletide classics and traditional carols the show is packed full of Christmas sparkle.



After going online for the past two years we will perform The Christmas Show live this year for the first time since the pandemic!

However we are not abandoning our online audiences as we plan on going live and online for 2022.


If you would like to know more about The Christmas Show then watch our short intro video below.

The show is packed full of Christmas cheer. From funny fairy tales and yuletide classics to a flavour of Elvis and festive film faves, there is something for everyone. There is even a special appearance from a certain jolly man in a red suit.

To make our show happen we’re reliant on the wonderful business community around us. We’re so grateful to each and every one of our sponsors! Thank you! We couldn’t do it without you.

This year we want to fill our Christmas Calendar and we have a number of different packages for businesses to get involved. If you would like to know more and find out how you can appear on our calendar then please download the information here.

Our show will launch online in December 2022 at 7.30. It will be available for you to watch anytime from then until Jan 3rd 2023.

Our Live show will take place on December 11th at 7.30pm at Melbourne Assembly Rooms.

It’s singing and dancing with a bit of comedy thrown in and all in beautiful costumes.

Join us in person for a celebration of  Christmas cheer or snuggle up warmly by the fire, bring out the hot chocolate and enjoy a Christmas cracker of a show from the comfort of your own sofa.



In 2021 our show went online to ensure all of our audiences could share in our Christmas cheer.

It was with the help of our 12 sponsors of Christmas that we were able to do this and we are so grateful to each and every one of them.


2020 was the start of our online journey with our show going digital for the very first time.

2020 was a bonkers year for everyone and for us our journey was full of ups and downs. As Christmas approached we hadn’t worked all year and had no money left in the pot. We launched a crowdfunder to help save our show. In just 35 days we raised £13,000 and went on to film our show with Goldbox Productions and put our show online.

Watch our trailer for the 2020 show.

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!

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.
