Christmas at The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre


The Spring in Havant is getting geared up for Christmas with a range of festive shows, and we are sure that there is something for everyone!

This year The Spring is putting on two special festive shows – one for the adults, and one for the children.

A Christmas Carol and Cabaret takes place from Wednesday 14 December – Friday 16 December, and is a night strictly for the adults to enjoy! Each evening, there will be a performance of A Christmas Carol by the hilarious (and slightly rude) Living Spit, plus a cabaret performance from a different artist each night before and after the show. We will be turning The Spring into our very own winter wonderland, with festive food from Tilly the Tram outside, Christmas cocktails, and even some bauble-making!

This year, we are very excited to announce that we have commissioned our very first Christmas family show exclusively for Havant, with the talented Commotion Dance. The show, Where is Christmas? is an enchanting, immersive performance for little ones aged 7 and under, and their families, and runs from Wednesday 21 December – Saturday 24 December. Come along and peek inside a world of boxes, where three jolly characters dance their little stockings & through an unforgettable festive adventure to try and discover, just where is Christmas? Stacking, sorting, packing and piling unfold into adventurous possibilities with quirky characters, enthralling movements and enchanting live music.

In the lead-up to Christmas, we’ve also got two varied music shows to get you into the festive mood.

If you are looking for a relaxed, nostalgic evening, Johnny Coppin, one of England’s finest folk singer-songwriters, is here on Saturday 10 December. He will be performing a mixture of traditional carols and new songs, together with stories, superstitions and folklore from the UK and beyond.

For the party-goers, we have world renowned soul and blues singer Geno Washington and his Ram Jam Band on Saturday 17 December. Geno is referred to by many as the ‘King of Soul’, and his world famous live shows were immortalized in two of the biggest selling albums of the 60s – Hand Clappin’ Foot Stompin’ Funky Butt Live, and Hipsters Flipsters and Finger Poppin’ Daddies
