WITH ALL NEW STORIES
There is a wood in the wildest part of Cornwall
Where the land meets the swirling sea
And here in the middle of winter
You will find Old magic in the trees
Step this way
Wander into wonder
Experience the wild magic
Of the woodland in midwinter.
Rogue Theatre returns to the wilds of Tehidy Woods North Cliffs this December with our enchanting celebration of winter;
Winter Wood; a festival of wonder!
Follow the path deeper into the Winter Wood, a dreamscape of nature and elemental magic as Old Man Winter’s world of stories, faeries and forgotten connections comes life.
Created by Cornwall’s award winning immersive and highly visual Rogue Theatre, Winter Wood is an immersive adventure for families and those who wish to remember the magic we often overlook.
Pass through the Woodland Gate in the safety of your household bubble and follow the twisting path…
Let the faeries and woodland path guide you to the Midwinter Grotto, where Old Man Winter will welcome you into the magic of a story, catch your wish and weave your imaginations with the wonders of winter.
Experience Cornwall’s well-loved festive tradition with a more dazzling, wild and magical spirit than ever –
“My excitement for Winter Wood just grows and grows. This year, more than ever, it feels important to celebrate nature, our connection to each other and to embrace the seasons, the turning of the planets and our midwinter dreams of new beginnings”
– Old Man Winter
Twice listed in the Guardian Newspaper’s Top 10 Christmas Walks, and winner of a What’s On Cornwall Award 2017 for “Best Theatre Show” Winter Wood is a unique festive marvel to behold, set in the heart of the Winter Wood it is part exhilarating walk through the trees and part gathering in a warm tent where a magical story comes to life and a festival spirit unfolds.
There will be a show with live music, festive stories, winter wonders, a free hot chocolate (or hot spiced apple drink) for everyone, a warm place to relax and the chance to make your own traditional winter decoration to take home.
WINTER WOOD 2020 has been designed with safety in mind for these unusual times and invites you to wind your way through the magic of the Winter Wood in the safety of your household bubble.
The safety measures have been woven into the wonder of the event, we just ask you to follow the path, listen to the Rogues, lose yourself in the wild and be mindful along the way.
(Safety information about your Winter Wood event will be sent to you by the box office prior to your visit).
Each Winter Wood lasts around 1 hour and 40 minutes and includes an enchanting walk through the Winter Wood, a sat down (social distanced) story that comes to life in the Midwinter Grotto, and a place to relax and enjoy a minced pie or some midwinter cheer.
Each Winter Wood experience ends in the Winter Moon’s Refreshment Tent where your Bubble will be invited to relax (with places to sit), to gather your imaginations, make a free decoration and enjoy a festive refreshment you can buy from the bar (with fabulous faerie table service).
There are toilets here too.
There is a one-way path from here (a short cut) that will lead you safely back to your car
Bring a torch, a warm coat, wellies, and a sense of adventure!
The path twists and turns and is bumpy under foot but should be fine for a rugged buggy!
