This year The Milestone Hotel welcomed three ballerinas from The Nutcracker celebrate the start of their festive season by officially turning on their Christmas lights.  Whilst we were there we asked Jose Pauco, Head Concierge at The Milestone to share his top 5 Christmas shows.

  1. Scrooge the Musical at The London Palladium

    Until 12 January 2013

    Don’t let the name fool you this Charles Dickens’ family classic, always delivers a Christmas cheer to its audience. Set in Victorian London, join Ebenezer Scrooge on his journey to discover his Christmas spirit Scrooge as he is visited by three (not too scary) ghosts on Christmas Eve, showing him his past, present and future.

  2. The Snowman at The Peacock Theatre

    28 November 2012 – 6 January 2013 

    Another of my favourite children’s classics is The Snowman. As many young children have often dreamed sometimes snowman really do come to life. Follow the Boy and his new friend the Snowman as they encounter dancing penguins, reindeer and of course, Father Christmas. Every year I love to see children discover this fantasy for the first time and parents relive it from their childhood. Featuring the beautiful Walking on Air and a live orchestra it is one for all the family.

  3. The Nutcracker at The London Coliseum

    12 December 2012 – 5 January 2013

    Join young Clara on Christmas Eve as she journeys through an enchanted dream world with her Nutcracker doll, fighting the Mouse King and exploring the Land of Sweets with the Sugar Plum Fairy. Performed to Tchaikovsky’s score and danced by the English National Ballet, you’ll find yourself entranced by the beauty of the performance. We were lucky enough to have three of these gorgeous ballerinas turn on our Christmas lights this year – we wish we could of kept them for the whole season!

  4. Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: John Rutters Christmas Celebration at The Royal Albert Hall

     3rd December 2012 3pm & 7pm

    This year John Rutter returns to the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for his Christmas Celebration.

    Join him as you enjoy some of the best Christmas carols, choral pieces and orchestral works in this magnificent setting.

  5. Royal Choral Society Christmas Carols at The Royal Albert Hall

    17th December 2012 7.30pm 

    Finally celebrating their 140th Anniversary this year, the Royal Choral Society return to the Royal Albert Hall.
