A heart warming festive treat for children aged 3+ and their families.

Snowflakes are falling and Anna needs a coat to keep her warm and snug. But times are hard, so Anna and Mummy set out to make a new coat – with a little help from their friends.

A New Coat for Christmas is inspired by a true tale of finding friendship in the most surprising circumstances. Following the success of Alby the Penguin Saves Christmas last year, Reading Rep bring this enchanting story to the stage with music, fun and a flock of very fluffy sheep. The perfect festive treat!
