London. Christmas Eve.

A little girl struggles fiercely through the snow. In an attempt to stay warm she strikes a match.

The flame blazes into life, illuminating fantastic Christmas visions. We meet talking turkeys, dancing rats, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree.

In this touching, madcap and heart-warming Christmas show, the Last Baguette use visual story telling, live music and puppetry to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen's classic winter tale.
