Where is the venue?

Does the venue have wheelchair access?

If you have any specific needs please contact us ahead of your visit.

Please note wheelchair spaces are limited and must be booked in advance.

Can I reserve seats for the BSL performances so I can see the interpreter?

Yes. Please contact us so that we can reserve seats for you.

Do we have specific seats?

No. Like our previous shows at Fruit our seating is unreserved. We ask you kindly to sit as directed by our front of house team, filling seats from the front.

Are there refreshments?

Yes. Jubilee will be selling soft drinks, sweets and ice cream. They accept both cast and cards.

Is there a bar?

Yes. The bar will be run by the venue and stocked with beers from Atom, a Hull brewery.

Can I buy tickets on the door?


Are you collecting for charities again this year?

Yes. In 2017 you raised over £3,000 for Hull Homeless and Hull Red – thank you so much!

This year we are collecting for Hull Foodbank and for our Community Tickets, so that we can share tickets with people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to see a Christmas show.

What’s the difference between the family and late-night shows?

Our late-night version is for adults only, a chance to leave the kids at home and enjoy a Christmas night out with your supposedly grown up mates. The script is the same, except we sprinkle far more risqué jokes and ad libs in there, the likes of which are not suitable for younger ears.

Age guidance

All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at the 3pm and 7pm shows. The 10pm shows are strictly 18+ and ID may be required.
