12 Days of Christmas with Family Tickets

Christmas is coming soon! Have you bought all your presents? Set up the Christmas Tree? Sent a letter to Father Christmas? Sang Christmas carols?

Here at Family Tickets, We do things a bit differently...

We bring you 12 things to do this season (and beyond) with your families inspired by the song 12 Days of Christmas! Here we go:

  1. A partridge in a pear tree

    partridge - London Zoo

    We Don’t know if there’s a pear tree in ZSL London Zoo but what we definitely know is that they have a partridge! A crested wood partridge to be exact, also known as Rollulus rouloul. 

  1. Two turtle doves 

    White Christmas

    The two singing sensation sisters Betty and Judy in Irving Berlin’s White Christmas are our turtle doves! Watch them and the rest of the brilliant casts enthral the audience at Dominion Theatre until 4 January only! Did you know? If you book by 20 Dec, you can get £39.50 tickets!* see here for more information.

  1. Three French hens 

    Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs

    There may not be any french hens but how about seeing their extinct cousin Mr T the T-Rex and the rest of his pirate dinosaurs crew at Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: The Magic Cutlass in Leicester Square Spiegeltent. Don’t miss this fun show - it runs until 5 January only!

  1. Four calling birds 

    A Christmas Carol

    Scrooge was called upon by Four Ghosts in A Christmas Carol – much spookier than birds! Watch this timeless story come to life in a heartwarming play at The Old Vic with mince pies, music and merriment. Hurry - until 18 January only!

  1. Five golden rings 

    Billionaire Boy

    We reckon Billionaire Boy could afford quite a few gold rings! Catch him at Bloomsbury Theatre, London until 5 January only! 

  1. Six geese a-laying 

     Jack & The Beanstalk

    Hopefully Jack will be able to defeat the Giant and find the goose a-laying golden eggs in Southport’s pantomime, Jack & The Beanstalk! This fantastic panto ends on 29 December.

  1. Seven swans a-swimming 

    Hampton Court Palace

    Visit the historic Hampton Court Palace and you might be lucky to see some swans swimming at The beautiful Long Water!

  1. Eight maids a-milking


    Maybe these maids can offer up a glass of milk to wash down the sweet pie served at Waitress in Adelphi Theatre. Booking until 4 July 2020!

  1. Nine ladies dancing 


    We count 6 Queens and 3 Ladies-in-Waiting in the smash-hit SIX The Musical. Following last year’s sell out pop-concert musical, SIX returns triumphantly to the Arts Theatre powered by an all-female band. Show starts on 7 January until 5 July 2020!

  1. Ten lords a-leaping 

    Mary Poppins

    They may not be lords but we can’t wait to see the Chimney Sweeps leap over the London Skyline in Mary Poppins! On now until 5 June 2020 at the Prince Edward Theatre.

  1. Eleven pipers piping 

    School of Rock Musical

    We may have been piping on recorders as children, but the kids in the fun-filled musical School of Rock really have star talent. 

  1. Twelve drummers drumming

    Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

    We’re not sure Joseph and his 11 brother ever took up drumming, but the 12 of them can certainly make some great music! Back by popular demand at the London Palladium, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat starts next year from 2 July until 6 September!

Hope you enjoyed reading our 12 days of Christmas recommendations and found a memory-making event with us, Family Tickets. 


Happy Christmas to you all!
