It’s a Wonderful Life this December at The Place Theatre


“COVID-19 tried to stop us from telling the story of George Bailey’s salvation!”

In 2020 Mangled Yarn were gearing up for Christmas with us at The Place Theatre, Bedford. Like the world around us, the pandemic stopped the plucky creatives in their tracks and we were all forced to think again. It was collaborating with the Bedfordshire Community that saved the day.

The Mangled yarn gang worked with local Bedford folk, The Place team and Arts Council England to put together the digital pandemic – proof show “Every Time a Bell Rings.”

This year Mangled Yarn are thrilled to return to face our audiences at The Place Theatre and finish what they started.

“It’s a Wonderful Life” is an incredible new, Actor/Musician adaptation of the classic tale, filled with joy, laughter and perfect for the whole family.

Whether the story of George Bailey and Clarence Odbody, Angel Second Class, is an old favourite or you’re discovering it for the first time, we know you’ll love it!

“A story of salvation, of a community coming together in the face of adversity. A story for our time.” Christopher Smart, Mangled Yarn Theatre.

Join us at The Place Theatre this Christmas from December 14-31, as Mangled Yarn brings Bedford Falls to Bedford.
