FREE Christmas fun at Kirkgate Market for children and families with a very local flavour
A roller coaster ride across the rooftops of Leeds, a collection of magical, musical and explosively entertaining Christmas Tales from Yorkshire’s famous Alive & Kicking Interactive Theatre Company. 
Santa, surely a relative of Martin Riley, arrives at Kirkgate Market with a sack-full of the hilarious mishaps he’s had while delivering presents to Leeds children.
With the help of his multi-talented and mischievous friends, Tricksy Pixie and Scary Fairy, (who have an amazing likeness to performer and magician Luke Dickson and singer songwriter and puppet-maker Kathleen Yore), he’s ready to bring them to life!
 His usual helpers are not in the best of elf, so Santa is forced to take on extra staff: a wickedly wonder-working pixy and that steam-punk tree fairy with the bent wing that you daren’t throw out!
 After whizzing round the Town Hall and getting a wetting in the Leeds Liverpool Canal, it becomes a race against the Christmas clock, climaxing in the wild one-minute-to-midnight “Last Minute” Goblin Market that takes place in Kirkgate – for those extra special customers.
