A new staging of David Walliams' kids novel 'Billionaire Boy' is coming to London for Christmas. It's the 'Richie Rich'-esque tale of a boy who's got pots of money but no friends. Then, he scoops up a rabble of 'normal' mates and gets involved in some surprising adventures. This production is masterminded by the team behind two other popular Walliams adaptations, 'Gangsta Granny' and 'Awful Auntie'. Ages five-plus.

The Little Angel's Christmas show features a family who fall foul of a tricksy pixie. Based on a folk story, it's a musical that explores what happens when they move their farm to the city, and forget to leave pudding out for a magical visitor. 'The Pixie and the Pudding' is created by Barb Jungr and Samantha Lane, the team behind last year's Little Angel show 'The Singing Mermaid'. It's aimed at kids aged four-to-eleven.
