Come and sit by the fire for a wintry tale with live music and magic, puppets and projections and a beautiful miniature theatre packed full of delights.

The Snow Bear is inspired by Norwegian folk tales and tells the story of a polar bear who is a carried away from his Arctic home. We join him on his adventures as he encounters mischievous elves, goblins and trolls.  But will the friendly Tomten’s magic help him find his way back to his home?

The Snow Bear is a special show in which all the characters are brought to life with mesmerising storytelling, puppets and shadows. It features lots of original songs to sing and wonderful music played on cello, tuba, accordion, ukuleleand steel tongue drum.

When you join us in our snowy landscape please bring your own teddy – as there is lots of audience involvement too!

Chris Bostock and Ken Patterson are the team who have brought you The Singing Wind, Starlight and Tales for the Turning Year.
