Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: A valuable asset to the English Riviera for nearly eighty years, the Babbacombe Theatre is renowned for wowing audiences with their highly-acclaimed variety shows, performed throughout the year by a professional cast. Music, Magic and Mirth in all its guises is what ‘Christmas is…Magical’ promises this festive season. The family show promises spellbinding Illusions, the obligatory ‘Singalong’, some movie masterpieces, pop hits, comedic classics, Disney favourites, dashing cavaliers and a host of heavenly angels. Look out too for the international travellers raising ‘a glass’ or ‘twelve’ of cheer, as they enjoy a little bit too much, of the Christmas Spirit! For details of all other shows programmed at Devon’s No.1 theatre (as rated by TripAdvisor), for 2017/18, please refer to the venues website. The theatre has, access for wheelchair users with an accessible toilet, wheelchair spaces & Loop System.

We went to the Christmas show, which contained a wide variety of song, dance and comedy which was very well scripted produced and presented. The cast were all clearly talented and produced a very polished performance. Would go back again any time I was in the area.

Dear Ashley T

Thank you very much, most especially from the production team of Christmas Stars for your generous comments and 5 star review.

We do agree with you, there was a very talented cast giving polished performances, and it is down to them that our production, Christmas Stars, was such a success.

We hope when you visit us again, you will enjoy the experience as much, if not more the second time around?!
