The graduate London-based dance company Ballet Central will this December launch an original film of the Christmas favourite ballet Nutcracker told through the 12 days of Christmas. The 30 minute film will be shown exclusively at the ADC Theatre, Cambridge, at nine screenings; 17, 18 and 19 December at 2.30pm, 4.30pm and 6.30pm each day. Tickets are limited to allow for social distancing in the theatre and cost just £7, obtainable from the ADC Theatre Box Office on 01223 300085 and www.adctheatre.com.
