13 December – Neverland at Theatre Deli
Taking inspiration from both Peter Pan and the life of the book’s author JM Barrie, Neverland is an immersive performance at Theatre Deli on Eyre Street, where the audience dives into a dark and dangerous world of mermaids, rum and glittering pirates. There are be food fights, absinthe bars and soaring live music from a band of lost boys.
On 23 December, Neverland is throwing The Lost Boys’ Christmas Party. Join Tootles, Nibs, Slightly, Curly and The Twins as they celebrate Christmas in Neverland. Pick your team – pirates, mermaids or fairies – play party games with the cast, and boogie to a set list of nostalgia.
On 31 December, join the cast of Neverland for a night of glitter, cabaret, banquets, live music and circus at The Tinker Ball. As the cast and crew celebrate Neverland’s final performance in Sheffield the show’s set will be transformed into a playground for a night of absinthe, flying fairies and more.
