Overview

A valuable asset to the English Riviera for nearly eighty years, the Babbacombe Theatre is renowned for wowing audiences with their highly-acclaimed variety shows, performed throughout the year by a professional cast. Music, Magic and Mirth in all its guises is what ‘Christmas is…Magical’ promises this festive season. The family show promises spellbinding Illusions, the obligatory ‘Singalong’, some movie masterpieces, pop hits, comedic classics, Disney favourites, dashing cavaliers and a host of heavenly angels. Look out too for the international travellers raising ‘a glass’ or ‘twelve’ of cheer, as they enjoy a little bit too much, of the Christmas Spirit! For details of all other shows programmed at Devon’s No.1 theatre (as rated by TripAdvisor), for 2017/18, please refer to the venues website. The theatre has, access for wheelchair users with an accessible toilet, wheelchair spaces & Loop System.

An excellent stand up presentation from a well​ known ex politician and TV personality. It was very topical and not scripted.
