Summary : Letters from Father Christmas

The complete series of Father Christmas letters written by JRR Tolkien for his own children between 1920 and 1943.

Can you imagine writing to Father Christmas and actually getting a reply? Every year, the children of J.R.R. Tolkien would write to Father Christmas, and the letters they received told wonderful stories of his adventures at the North Pole. These humorous tales are brought to life by Derek Jacobi as Father Christmas, John Moffatt as Polar Bear, and Christian Rodska as Ilbereth the Elf, complete with specially composed music.


‘Tolkien at his relaxed and ingenious best’

‘Will appeal to any kids whose appreciate of new worlds hasn’t been blighted by Action Man and enlightened schoolteachers’
Terry Prachett
