From Tuesday (Dec 16) and through to Saturday (Dec 21) Wavendon venue The Stables hosts its family Christmas show, The Little Red Hen. 'Making bread is hard work, but it would be a lot easier if the lazy farm animals got off their reclining sofas and lent a hand!' The pig, the rat and the cow decline to help our feathered star, and so the Little Red Hen sets about doing it herself! This adaptation - a treat for ages three to seven and their parents - is crammed with animal puppets, sing-a-long songs and madcap comic routines. "It's a real treat for the whole family with no scary bits whatsoever!" promise organisers. For show times and ticket prices visit www.stables.org or give the box office a call on 01908 280800.
