‘My children were totally absorbed by Miki from start to finish’Breath of Freash Air Marlow

'The children in the audience remained engaged and enthused throughout which was a delight to see' Bracknell Family Hub

'The show made a particularly drizzly day in Winter come alive with magic, snow, ice and twinkles!' Families Magazine

'The actors' clever use of voice manipulation kept the audience engaged and made each scene come to life' Maidenhead Advertiser

'There were so many characters and costume changes involved – I actually think they were shapeshifters – it was impressive!' WycMum

'My little ones were transfixed from the moment they sat down, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen them sit so still!' Little Ankle Biters

The Fir Tree

by Tove Jansson

From Tales in Moominvalley

The Moomin family was hibernating in the drawing room as they were wont to do. They had been sleeping for a few months already and were going to keep it up until spring… Now all at once a cold draught disturbed Moomintroll’s dreams. And someone was pulling at his quilt and shouting that he was tired and Christmas was coming.

Featuring live puppetry and music, The Fir Tree is an adventure set in the idyllic and peaceful Moominvalley. It is a gloriously unselfish take on Christmas.

Suitable for all audiences from 3 years and upwards.

Presented by Norden Farm, The Ding Foundation, Bernadette Russell and Steve Tiplady.
