Belle and Sebastien
About the show
We are delighted to announce our latest Christmas collaboration with Bristol Old Vic, Belle and Sebastien, based on the classic children's story by Cécile Aubry about a six-year-old boy and his dog Belle, a Pyrenean Mountain Dog.
Belle and Sebastien
A Love Story
There’s a vicious beast on the loose in the mountains – that’s what people are saying. But people say lots of things that aren’t true around here.
Back in the village, six-year-old Sebastien is tired of feeling different. Orphaned at birth, he longs for kinship and adventure. So, when he hears about a wild dog roaming the cliffs above his house, it isn’t long before he sets off in search of ‘Belle’, alone.
Join us this Christmas for a story of love, friendship and kindred spirits, set against the backdrop of snowy mountains and stormy relationships.
A classic family tale, re-imagined by two of the South West’s strongest co-producing partners, Travelling Light and Bristol Old Vic.
For ages 4+
A Travelling Light and Bristol Old vic co-production.

Pay it Forward campaign
This year we are again partnering with Bristol Old Vic on a very special fundraising campaign. The Pay It Forward ticket price includes your own Full Price ticket and an additional contribution that will enable children and their families with the least access to creative opportunities to enjoy a special trip to see Belle and Sebastien together. So select the Pay It Forward ticket price when booking your tickets.
Thanks to the generosity of Pay It Forward supporters last Christmas nearly 160 children and caregivers experienced the joy of theatre through our free community performances.
