There is also an additional 'Overseas Banking Charge' of £10 for this service, to cover the banking costs we incur for accepting a bank payment in a foreign currency. Please email us at orders@learn2soar.co.uk if you wish to receive your goods with a 30 day invoice, along with the additional £10 charge.

UK DELIVERY

UK STANDARD DELIVERY (£1.99): Physical orders are usually dispatched via standard first class post within 24 hours of the order being received (except on weekends / public holidays). Therefore, under normal circumstances most customers receive their orders within 1-3 working days. However, at peak times of the year (October to December) please allow a little longer for your order to arrive.

UK NEXT DAY DELIVERY (£7.50): The option for UK customers to have their order delivered via 'guaranteed next day delivery' is available for phone orders only on 0844 357 8473.

OVERSEAS (Non-UK) DELIVERY

OVERSEAS [NON-UK] DELIVERY (£10.99) : Physical orders are usually dispatched via a 'Tracked & Signed' delivery service, within 24 hours of the order being received (except on weekends / public holidays).

Deliveries will usually take 5-12 days to reach you, depending on your location. However, this timescale is not guaranteed. Please note that at peak times of the year (November / December), or if you have ordered from a remote part of the world, then your order may take 2 to 4 weeks to reach you. For this reason we highly recommend that overseas customers consider buying downloadable products rather than physical products, which is always an instant way of receiving your purchase. Or, combine the two options... purchase the download version to have now, plus the low price 'Extra CD' option to slowly make it's way to you.

EXPRESS OVERSEAS DELIVERY (£23.99): Alternatively, if you require your physical goods as urgently as possible, then we do have an express overseas delivery option available, which can get the goods to you in approximately 2-4 days (depending on your location). To purchase this express service, please visit the following page to add the £15.00 expedited delivery option, which is in addition to the standard £10.99 overseas delivery costs (Total express overseas delivery costs therefore becomes £15.00 + £10.99 = £25.99) https://www.learn2soar.co.uk/expedited

DOWNLOAD OPTIONS

HOW TO DOWNLOAD:

Select one of the download options above and 'add to basket'. Complete the checkout process and get everything you need instantly! You'll have immediate access to all the vocal & backing tracks (as MP3s) which you can burn to CD or transfer to a mobile device. Plus, you get scripts, ideas, song sheets, sheet music, etc... exactly the same material as if you'd ordered a hard copy by post. UK based schools can even use this system to order via invoice, and still get everything straight away. There's NO waiting for a link to be emailed. Download it all from this website now.  PLEASE NOTE:

(1) COMPATIBILITY: The download content is compatible with all devices; however, the first download needs to be made to a computer. You can then transfer the material to your tablet / phone if required. This is because the download comes as a 'zip file'. Most mobile devices are unable to open zip files. However, once you've 'unzipped the file on any computer, you can then transfer the contents to your mobile device. The quickest and easiest way to do this is usually to upload the contents to a shared server space, or cloud storage facility such as dropbox. Please remember that you are only allowed to share the downloaded files between four devices, unless you upgrade to a 'SITE LICENCE'.

(2) RESET / RENEWAL: Download links are valid for 3 months and for up to 20 download attempts. We advise you to save the download to a secure location, and to also make a back-up copy on a different device. If at any point you want your link to be reset, then how you proceed depends on how long ago your original purchase was: UNDER 12 MONTHS: If your original order was less than 12 months ago and you have been having technical difficulties, then your link can be reset for free. Please Contact Us for your free reset, and please let us know the nature of the technical difficulties so that we can help you find a suitable resolution. On the other hand, if you are under 12 months, but are not having technical issues (e.g. you want it reset because you have exhausted your 20 downloads by accessing the link on multiple devices, or because you no longer have access to the storage device you previously used) then you can have your link reset by paying a small service charge via this link: Download Reset. OVER 12 MONTHS: If your original purchase was more than 12 months ago, then there will be a small service charge each time you want your link to be reset via this link: Download Reset.

PERFORMANCE LICENCE

SUMMARY:  A performance licence allows you to stage a performance of this work. To clarify, if you want to put on any type of performance using any section of this publication, however small, anywhere in the world, regardless of the age of the performers, regardless of whether admission is charged or not, regardless of whether the audience is in the room with you or watching a video or live-stream remotely, and even if the performance is 'for parents only', then you must still obtain a performance licence directly from this website, either by purchasing one of the licensed versions above, or by purchasing a full price licence from our performance licence page at a later date. This is a worldwide legal requirement.

UNLICENSED: If you choose one of the unlicensed versions above, then the songs/script can only be used for personal listening/viewing, or as a teaching aid within a closed setting, with no live audience or virtual audience of any description. If you change your mind later on and decide that you would like to perform after all, then you will have to purchase a full-price licence from our performance licence page. You can only get the half-price licence special offer if you buy your licence at the same time as you buy the musical using one of the above options.

FURTHER DETAILS: Please visit our PERFORMANCE LICENCE page for much more information and FAQ.


RECORDING LICENCE

SUMMARY: A 'Recording Rights Licence' is an additional licence which is required if you are planning to sell or widely distribute recordings of your performance, via DVD, or online video, or live-stream.

Free recording licences are available for low-level usage. If your usage is not low-level, e.g more than 50 families watching, or if you're charging a fee for DVDs or online video access, then you may need to buy a recording licence from us. How much you pay for your recording licence depends on the following...

1) The number of users accessing your recording, or the number of DVDs you're producing.

2) The amount of money you are charging for each DVD / online access.

If you have less than 50 users, with no charges being made, then a recording licence is usually free (conditions apply). And if you do need to pay, then prices are very low, starting from just £7.50 a year.

IMPORTANT: (1) A Recording Rights Licence is in addition to your Performance Licence. It does not replace it. (2) Regardless of whether you qualify for a free 'Recording Rights Licence', or you have to pay for one, you must still follow our distribution rules: Any online video or live-stream must be password protected in some way so that it can only be accessed by your intended audience. And any DVD that you produce must contain special copyright wording. For customers who pay for their recording licence, this copyright wording can be found on your invoice / receipt after purchase. For free recording licence customers, this copyright wording is available on request. Please contact us for details.

FURTHER DETAILS: Please visit our RECORDING LICENCE page for further details, FAQs, or to order now.

For further information, FAQs & prices, please visit our SITE LICENCE page.


Terrific Value
"Well it took us three days, but that was only because of the choice I made to take your optional nativity scene and make it a lot longer. So instead of a nativity scene within a Christmas play, it became a full nativity play within a Christmas play! So I only have myself to blame, but I think we could have done it one one day if I'd put my mind to it. Either way, whether you want to do it in just one day, or spread it out longer, I'd still strongly recommend this title. There are so many resources and ideas included that it really is terrific value for money."
by S Richardson - Teacher

Perfect
"A perfect little play to use with children at Christmas. Our show was a real success and was so easy to produce. Wishing you as much of the Christmas joy as you've brought into the life of our school this year."
by Ms Gemma Collins

Really easy to use
"Yes, that’s’ me! I'm one of those busy stressed teachers that you've been aiming this play at and I had to drop you a quick line to say that it really did save me from a potentially sticky situation. Originally, we'd planned to do something completely different that was supposed to be provided by our visiting music teacher, but when they let us down I needed an alternative fast! Fortunately I found this pack on Google and it was the answer to all my prayers. I really loved the fact that I could easily download it over lunchtime and then we were able to start going through the songs immediately that afternoon. The next morning we went through the script and by the end of the day the performance was ready to go for the watching parents. It was a delight and really, really easy to use."
by Jen Jones

Thank you
"Thank you for Christmas Play in 1 Day. I downloaded it on the Tuesday night and we performed it on the Friday morning. We were able to use the script exactly as written, with the printable resources and Powerpoints being a real Godsend. Although the advice you provide suggests only using up to four of the six songs included, we actually used them all. We had two days of rehearsals planned, but you were correct, one would have been enough! That meant we were able to use the second day to add a bit of sparkle and polish with a few simple dance moves, extra ho-ho-ho's and lots of party poppers for a surprise finale! It went really well and a number of parents gave really excellent feedback. One word of advice to anyone thinking they can literally download this in the morning and perform it the same afternoon, I wouldn't recommend it as you need to spend a good few hours planning, preparing, printing, and getting your head round the songs and script, all before you start rehearsing with the children. So, in my opinion two days from start to finish is more realistic, but I suppose there's no reason why you couldn't plan, rehearse and perform a very simple version of this play in half a day. Finally, I have to say that I loved the subject matter of the play. The fact that it was set in a children's hospital served to remind the students that Christmas isn't always a joyful time for everyone, whilst at the same time the script still provided enough humour and charm to ensure that the everyone left with that warm, fuzzy festive feeling."
by B Parker

Does what it says on the tin
"I was very impressed by this clever children’s Christmas production. Is it the best Christmas play we've ever used? Of course not. There's no way you could get that from just a few hours of rehearsals. But does it help stressed teachers like me to conjure an impressive performance in next to no time? Absolutely! It really does do 'what it says on the tin’. We're only a small school with just three classes covering all ages from 5 to 11 and this suited us perfectly. Even more so, as I knew that we were probably due an inspection at some point during November or December and didn’t want to have to labour through weeks and weeks of endless rehearsals like we usually do. As it turned out the inspection happened on the day of the show! Thankfully it went without a hitch and the inspector that watched was suitably impressed, especially when I told her what little time we'd spent rehearsing! So, thank you Stuart Ross and your team for creating a very cleverly presented Christmas resource which genuinely helped our school in more ways than you could know."
by Mr R Yandell

Love it, love it, love it...
"We downloaded this performance last year and had to tell you how much we loved using it. Considering all the terrific songs, music, scripts and extra resources that are included, it's a cracking bargain. But the best thing is that we really were able to rehearse this in a day, with the minimum of preparation, saving us loads of valuable time. Though we couldn't have done it without reading through your included production notes and suggestions - Some very clever ideas for rehearsing quickly and a welcome change from the weeks and weeks of rehearsals we usually undertake. Well done Learn 2 soar!"
by Marie Mullins - Assistant Head

Thankyou
"We recently performed this and just want to say that the songs are really good and the script suited our needs perfectly! This is the first time we've used Learn2soar and we are greatly impressed. I'm sure that we will be buying from you a lot more in the future. The only problem is knowing what to select as there is so much great sounding material to choose from on your website!"
by Mrs Harris
