Sleighing It Festive Show 2021

Tuesday, December 21


Shows at 7pm (5+) & 9pm (16+) with an incredible line up of music, stand up, drag, dance, poetry, theatre and burlesque to close 2021 with a big festive, glittery, bang!

This is a Pay What You Decide show (which includes paying £0!)

We know how sh*t hot the talent in Plymouth is and how 2021 hasn’t been quite the year we thought it would, so we’re putting on a festive show at Barbican Theatre to close 2021 with a big festive, glittery, bang!

Sleighing It will feature professional and emerging artists from the Plymouth and Devon/Cornwall area performing in a light hearted festive cabaret style show. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the amazing talent in our little corner of the UK that’s changing the world!

Tickets: Pay What You Decide

You can decide what you would like to pay now by adding a ticket with a value to your cart (on the next screen after), or you can pay after you have seen the show (by choosing a £0 value ticket).

Looking around at other events going on in the city, we estimate that 1 ticket to similar events would cost £12.

There is no ‘right’ answer, we are not attempting to lead you to a specific figure. You can pay £0 for your ticket.


There are 14 performances in total. The 7pm performances are suitable for those aged 5+. The 9pm performances have an age guidance of 16+ as they are more adult (aka naughty/cheeky!) with ‘post-watershed’ content and language.

Week 1 (15-18 Dec) will be hosted by the fabulous, very witty and legendary local drag artist #DorisJohnson and also features Joey Lee (Breakdancing), Milo Cradick Trio (Band), Danielle Coates (Dance), Kate Ferguson (Singer/Musician), Jonathan Mason (Spoken Word) City College Plymouth Dance, Chloe Fear (Dance)
