Moon on a Stick Present: The Abominable Snowman- THIS IS NOW SOLD OUT

Meet the Abominable Snowman in this very silly, very snowy adventure into the mountains.

The Abominable Snowman is big and hairy and scary…or is? With footsteps so big you can fall into them no wonder everyone’s afraid of him. But Snowball isn’t scary at all. You’d be better to call him the Adorable Snowman!

Moon On A Stick reinvent this wonderful tale of an unlikely hero with a delightful blend of puppetry, live-music and enchanting storytelling perfect for ages 3+



























Thursday 21st December, 2pm

£4 adults, £2 children

Family Christmas Movie, The Muppets Christmas Carol

Based on the Dickens novel “A Christmas Carol”, this is a liberal but fun adaptation of a classic Christmas story.  The beak nosed Gonzo takes on the role of Dickens and narrates the tale as they take you on a journey through a dank London, filled with all your favourite Muppets and a lot of talking vegetables too.  Start the Christmas holidays off with some great fun and join for our last family event of 2018.


Otley Courthouse is a unique development run by people in Otley, West Yorkshire. After an eight year development period we transformed a redundant nineteenth century magistrates court into a unique arts and resource centre for our community.
