Christmas is not time to have an operation. But that is exactly when Tracy must have hers. Not only is she afraid to go under the anesthetic, she’s also worried she’ll miss Christmas altogether. Fortunately, she has her Grandad to keep her company. When they meet a strange lady who claims to be the wife of Father Christmas, who has refused to do Christmas this year, the adventure begins.

“Grandad’s Big Adventure certainly sent this critic away with a long-since felt air of festive magic and anticipation. Highly recommended theatre-going for all the family.” -Chichester Observer, UK
