The Lion Salt Works Museum, is to host a fun, quirky and engaging Christmas performance called ‘Letters Through Your Door’. Written by award-winning song writer, David Gibb this one-hour performance will take place on Sunday 6 December at 2.30pm.

‘Letters Through Your Door’, a Cheshire Rural Touring Performance, is a collection of music and songs just for children. The themes range from the everyday to the surreal. Whether finding a dragon in your bedroom, dreaming about swimming in the sea or simply waiting for the postman to arrive, the performance has something for everyone.

‘Letters Through Your Door’ takes place on Sunday 5 December at 2.30 and costs £6 for adults and £4 for under 16 year-olds. Two family tickets are available – 2 adults, 2 children for £16 ; 1 adult, 3 children costs £13.85.

The show is suitable for 4-11 year-olds and will be held in one of the historic Stove Houses at the Museum that has been rebuilt and especially adapted to host plays and conferences.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Wellbeing at Cheshire West and Chester Council, said: “It gives us immense pleasure to be staging this children’s performance during the Museum’s Victorian Christmas Weekend. We hope that before the children watch the performance, they will make the most of visiting the free activities available on Sunday. These activities include visiting Father Christmas in his Winter Wonderland, making Christmas cards and paper chains and writing letters to Santa. We hope everyone will also enjoy seeing the historic steam engines that will be adding to the interest and atmosphere of the day.”
