Inside the National Gallery’s Picture Perfect Christmas show


Looking for the ultimate festive event this season for the family? Look no further than the National Gallery’s ‘Picture Perfect Christmas’ show. With performances on various dates and times from November 26 to December 23, 2022, this festive theatrical production brings art and theater together, in an adventure of the secret life that inhabits art, for the enjoyment of the whole family.

The production, created with Boo Productions, will see Avercamp’s iconic 17th-century oil painting, “A Winter Scene with Skaters near a Castle”, adapted for the stage. In a one-of-a-kind event for the National Gallery, the Picture Perfect Christmas Show will see the theater transformed into a wintry theatrical feast.

Audiences will immerse themselves in the story of two children Frederick and Maaike as they journey through the woods, encountering magical creatures, wandering frosty landscapes and skating on glittering ice rinks. Expect Christmas songs, dances and merrymaking against the icy Netherlands of the 1600s.

The public is invited, before or after the performance at the National Gallery Theatre, to explore the whole of the National Gallery, which is free, and all it has to offer. Located in the heart of London in Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery is widely recognized as one of the most prestigious galleries of its kind and is home to some of the world’s most important and influential works of art by Bellini, Cézanne, Degas , Leonardo, Monet, Raphael, Rembrandt, Renoir, Rubens, Titian, Turner, Van Dyck, Van Gogh and Velázquez.

When you’re looking for a place to unwind before production, Muriel’s Kitchen Pop Up Café at the Museum of Fine Arts is the ultimate destination for food, drink and fun. Customers can take a moment to enjoy cookies, candies, sandwiches and all things nice for toddlers, as well as mince pies and mulled wine, soft drinks and hot beverages. Visitors will also find The Espresso Bar for drinks and snacks, Muriel’s Kitchen for something delicious and more substantial, and for fine dining they can book a table in the new Gallery Ocher restaurant and enjoy the best of British ingredients with a European touch.
