Nutcracker Christmas Gala

Join English National Ballet and Chelsea Ballet Schools for a magical afternoon of entertainment

Join English National Ballet and Chelsea Ballet Schools for a magical afternoon of Christmas entertainment throughout the London Coliseum at the Nutcracker Christmas Gala.

Step into the enchanted world of ballet with a glass of mulled wine, mince pies and festive fun, before sitting back to watch a special adaptation of Nutcracker, performed by the 8-15 year old children of Chelsea Ballet Schools alongside English National Ballet’s dancers.

This Nutcracker Christmas Gala promises to be a wonderful afternoon of family festivity, with the chance to support aspiring young talent along the way – a truly unmissable event.
