They’re promising a cornucopia of comic Christmassy crudeness with silly songs, pitiful puppetry and plenty of Biblical befuddlement. So I’m in then. For over 16s only.


Classic Christmas, Gourmet Picture Company, Royal Victoria Park, Bath, various dates between Thurs 14 Dec–Sun 31 Dec



Rick Stein and Tom Kerridge pop up in Bath with the Gourmet Picture Company, offering three-course meals curated by the two chefs accompanied by screeenings of classic films. Oooh, nice.
