We Wish You A Terry Christmas 

t’s Christmas Eve and Santa is on the final leg of his annual delivery service. Unfortunately, he has crashed in the woods and it looks like the children of Cornwall will not be getting any presents this year. 

However, Santa is in for a shock. Help arrives, in the shape of Terry, a farting, nose-picking Cornish Knocker, who owns a magical stone. Terry offers to help Santa finish his deliveries, on one condition - he goes along for the ride. 

Santa isn’t sure, but he has no other option. He can’t bear to think of the children waking up with no presents to unwrap on Christmas morning, so reluctantly, he agrees, and his passenger settles himself down on the pile of sacks in the back of Santa’s big red delivery van.

This will prove to be a year like no other. Four children have all requested something very different that will completely change their lives. Unfortunately, they are not the normal presents Santa can deliver, but with the mischievous Terry onboard, this will prove to be anything but a normal Christmas Eve…

Join Santa and Terry on a magical Christmas adventure. Discover the truth about the good list or naughty list, find out what happens when Terry discovers a tin of quality street, and hear all about the fantastic vetting system that is otherwise know as the seagull-training-school.
