About the event

The Babbling Vagabonds are back this Christmas, this time returning to Markeaton Park Craft Village to share their stories with festive fun for all the family

It’s Christmas eve and the snow’s a-falling, the winds a-whipping and Will and Jake Grimm find themselves a-sheltering in a lonely barn. Trapped by a winter storm, the Brothers Grimm weave wonderful worlds and conjure up colourful characters as they tell each other terrific tales of delight to pass the time. 


If you enjoyed The Dinosaur Who Came for Christmas (or are still singing PJ and his Dinosaur from last year ... watch below) - we think you'll love this.
