The cat is back for 2023! Cousin Jack's eighth consecutive year performing The Mousehole Cat in Cornwall.

A magical puppet and live-action production is performed annually in the heart of Mousehole alongside the village’s famous Christmas light display.

Based on the well-known Cornish legend this uniquely heartwarming story of the friendship between a fearless fisherman and his devoted cat will warm the cockles of everyone's hearts... almost as much as an ‘efty portion of stargazy pie!

This magical show has an hour-long run time allowing families to soak up the atmosphere of Cornwall’s most famous Christmas light display and enjoy a live performance all in one evening.

Children and babies in arms
As a company that creates work solely for children (and their families), we have found over the years the fairest way of ticketing is with a single ticket price per audience member - cheaper than a conventional adult price and slightly more than a conventional child price. This usually works out cheaper for families than charging higher adult prices. 

Very young children who will be on an adult's lap throughout the performance do not need a ticket.

We hope to see you in Mousehole this year. 

What do I need to know?

Mousehole is extremely busy at this time of year. You will need to allow plenty of extra time to park and walk to the venue.
