As Covid-19 swept the UK, we faced a huge challenge when it comes to engaging young people in arts and culture. Venues were closed, school trips cancelled. There was only one thing to do. We had to bring the world of theatre to the students.

Together with Kent-based Circus Theatre Company Circo Rum Ba Ba, we created The Snow Queen’s Magnificent Message – an outdoor theatre experience that brought some winter magic to the school playground.

Arriving in the Snow Queen’s frost-bitten chariot, three performers bought the much loved fairy-tale to life through theatre, acrobatics and music.

In a time when live theatre experiences felt out of reach for so many, our Winter Schools Tour of The Snow Queen’s Magnificent Message engaged over 1000 young people across seven schools in Medway and Sheppey.

'It was a wonderful experience for our children. It created a little bit of winter magic in a dreary time for us all. Thank you so much.'
— Sue Mason, Head Teacher at Brompton Westbrook
