The House Where Winter LivesDiscover are collaborating with immersive theatre specialists Punchdrunk to create The House Where Winter Lives, a festive story for three to six-year-olds which turns the basement Story Studio space into a "magical frozen forest". Punchdrunk has a reputation for creating unique and memorable theatre experiences - their 2006 production of Faust was "frankly astounding" (The Guardian) - and with this show they invite youngsters to explore the magic and mystery of winter. Two forest dwellers prepare for a winter feast but they can't find the key to their larder. Wrap up warm and join them on a journey through a secret forest to find the missing key.
