What's On

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Back to What's On

Celebrate Christmas-time in spooktacular style with Tim Burton's delightfully dark Yuletide fable The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Pumpkin King Jack Skellington gets a new lease of life when he stumbles on Christmastown. He plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus, but discovers that the best-laid plans of mice and skeleton men can go seriously awry… With festive treats on offer in the merry surroundings of the Howard Assembly Room, this is a deliciously different Christmas treat for all the family. 

We've also planned an exciting puppet-making workshop inspired by Tim Burton’s magical musical fantasy. So join us before the film in the Howard Assembly Room between 10.30 – 12.30pm.

Dir Tim Burton; Cert PG; 76 mins; 1993
