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 returns to the wilds of Tehidy Woods North Cliffs this December with our enchanting celebration of winter;

Winter Wood; a theatrical 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 Otherworld,

Winter Wood is an immersive adventure for families and those who wish to remember the magic.


Pass through the Woodland Gate and follow the twisting path…

Let the faeries and woodland 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, winner of a What’s On Cornwall Award for “Best Theatre Show” and Gorsedh Kernow (The Bards of Cornwall) Medal for Cultural Contribution; 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 and a warm place to relax with a reasonably priced bar that serves delicious hot chocolates, mulled wine and mince pies (among other festive treats).


WINTER WOOD 2021 has been designed with magic in mind for these unusual times and invites you to wind your way through the wonder of the Winter Wood with a reduced capacity audience and plenty of fresh Cornish air.

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.

(Any updated 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 journey through the Winter Wood and a wondrous sat down theatre experience in Old Man Winter’s Midwinter Grotto.

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 or winter footwear, and a sense of adventure!

The path twists and turns and is bumpy under foot but should be fine for a rugged buggy!

Winter Wood is an event that takes place outdoors and in a well-ventilated marquee.

Inside the marquee there will be a constant flow of fresh air from the heater (which draws in air from outside), from the natural ventilation around the marquee and from the marquee doors (which will be regularly opened and closed and used to manage air flow through the marquee).

The show will welcome a reduced capacity audience providing more space to enjoy the wonder.

Hand sanitiser is available at key locations.

Mask wearing is welcome and invited inside the marquee.


Whilst Winter Wood is in the wild old wood, we are committed to overcoming obstacles and making our immersive events as accessible as possible.  Whilst adventurous, Winter Wood has good accessibility, and we are very happy to discuss access options via text or call on 07837561483 or [email protected]
