London, 1947. In a busy radio studio, the cast and crew are assembled for a very special recording of this year's biggest Christmas hit movie.

When the actor employed as Santa Claus, the star attraction of the world-famous Macy's Thanksgiving Parade is discovered drunk, it is up to by-stander Kris Kringle to step up and save the day. However, is there more to this Jolly Gentleman than first meets the eye? Can he really be the real thing? After winning over the belief of his employer's precocious daughter Susan Walker, he is faced with his biggest battle ever - to convince the world that he is the real Santa Claus and not a deluded old gentleman. Supported by his lawyer and Susan his case gets taken all the way to the Supreme Court. Will Kris Kringle succeed? Not only is his credibility on the line, but so is the belief of every child.

Come and watch the miracle unfold in this iconic story, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. Staged with astonishing live sound effects and a score of new and favourite holiday tunes, Miracle on 34th Street is a tale set in a time where love, respect and spirit of Christmas was paramount and is sure to melt even the most cynical of hearts.
