Car Park Party lifted the country's spirits this summer with the ONLY national tour of comedy, theatre and live music shows. After rave reviews from the public and press, they're back this winter with Car Park Panto, in partnership with the Birmingham Stage Company and Horrible Histories, to present Horrible Christmas.
Horrible Christmas is the story of how Christmas came to be what it is today, enabling families across the UK to enter into the festive spirit in a safe, socially distanced manner, from the comfort of their own (sleigh) car!
Audience members will have their tickets scanned through their car windows upon arrival at the outdoor venue.
Cars will then be parked more than two metres apart and audience members will watch the show from inside their vehicles, picking up sound from the performance via their radios.
Toilet facilities and food and drink will be available on site but social distancing measures will be in place.
Horrible Histories manager Neal Foster said: “We can't wait to be back on stage in cities and towns that will be crying out for a Christmas show to entertain their families.”
Venues and dates for the performances are yet to be announced, but SIGN-UP to be the first to find out when #CarParkPanto is coming to YOUR town: carparkparty.com
