The biggest yawn, the cosiest bed,

The softest blanket, the sleepiest head,

Winter's approaching, prepare for a rest,

With some help from the animals who hibernate best.

Come and gather in Trowbridge Town Hall and be transported to a magical forest full of mirth, live music and marvellous creatures.

As the nights draw in and temperatures drop, staying wrapped up in our nice warm beds seems like a great idea. But have you ever imagined what it would be like to stay asleep for the whole of winter? Some creatures are experts and they’re here to show you how.


Join award winning Little Bulb Theatre (house band in CBeebies ‘The Nutcracker’) as together we prepare to take a very long nap!

Audience members are encouraged to bring a favourite blanket and any cuddly friends who would like to tag along.  Suitable for ages 3-7.

This was our second show for younger audiences.  It was the Christmas show for Bristol Old Vic's studio space in 2015 and, much like its predecessor Antarctica, it transferred to Battersea Arts Centre for Christmas the following year.  It was last performed for Christmas 2017 at The Quarterhouse in Folkestone and it is still available for touring. 

 'Each number effortlessly outdoes the previous one in overall effect, building to a captivating finale.'
