Alma, a young girl with emotional problems, has a special relationship with her grandfather who stopped talking years ago after his son sold a 2000-years-old olive tree in order to open a restaurant. Dominated by the sadness of his beloved lost tree, he spends his days visiting the place where it once stood in the hope of its return. Unable to bear the situation any longer, Alma seeks out the olive tree tracing it to a company in Dusseldorf. Without money or resources, Alma convinces her uncle and her friend to go in a truck from Spain to Germany to recover the tree, starting a journey with unexpected consequences for everyone.

“Christmas is a season of joy, love and sharing,

Dasher the Reindeer has an idea…
Pompom the Penguin thinks he knows…
Or maybe Snowy the Snowman has the answer?

Mrs Claus needs all their help – and yours – to find out!
Join a fun, festive, musical adventure to give Santa the very best Christmas,
then meet him at his home in the North Pole!
There every child will receive a special present from Father Christmas
in our popular meet, greet and treat, after the most Christmassy Christmas show ever!

Songs include festive favourites
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Jingle Bells,
When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney, The Twelve Days Of Christmas,
We Wish You A Merry Christmas
and many more!”

Santa’s Christmas Wish is a festive, song-filled, interactive family show
particularly suitable for 2-7 year olds. It lasts 40 minutes 2.30pm to 3.50pm
followed by a special meet, greet and treat with Father Christmas himself!

2 hours  Cert. 12A  (UK/Sweden- 2017)
 
During the Blitz, Catrin Cole (Gemma Arteton) is recruited by the British Ministry of Information to write scripts for propaganda films that the public will actually watch without scoffing. In the line of her duties, Cole investigates the story of two young women who supposedly piloted a boat in the Dunkirk Evacuation. Although it proved a complete misunderstanding, the story becomes the basis for a fictional film with some possible appeal. As Cole labours to write the script with a couple of new colleagues, they struggle against sexism, jealous relatives, and political interference in their artistic decisions.
Mulled wine and mince pies will be served before the start of the film.
