CBeebies announces Hansel and Gretel in Edinburgh as its Christmas show for 2019

Hansel and Gretel will be broadcast on CBeebies and will be available on BBC iPlayer on 7 December



This year’s highly anticipated CBeebies Christmas Show will take place at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh.

It’s the first time the show has been recorded in Scotland and this year sees an adaptation of fairy-tale classic Hansel and Gretel.

Four live theatre performances will be recorded in Edinburgh across the weekend of 26-27 October with the special Christmas programme airing on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer on Saturday 7 December. The performance will again feature many of CBeebies' most popular actors and presenters, including, for the first time, Waffle the Wonder Dog.

Once again, families will also be able to experience the magic of the Christmas show on the 'big screen' as it hits cinemas across the UK with additional exclusive content.

The 2019 audience are set to be taken on a winter adventure through an enchanted forest as the story of Hansel and Gretel unfolds. The core message of the show is ‘never give up’ and the siblings have to overcome the many dangers of the deep, dark wood, but with the help of magical woodland creatures and by not giving up, the pair proves that the only thing that matters at Christmas is being together.

The show is also set to use the energy of the 1980s in its themes including inspired music, fashion and iconography.
