ARTS+ENTERTAINMENT THE NIGHT THAT AUTUMN TURNED TO WINTER IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE WOODS THIS CHRISTMAS, YOU ARE DEFINITELY SURE OF A BIG SURPRISE! FROM THURSDAY 14TH DECEMBER TO SUNDAY 24TH DECEMBER, JOIN THE AWARD-WINNING LITTLE BULB THEATRE AT QUARTERHOUSE, FOLKESTONE, AS THEY CREATE A MAGICAL WOODLAND WORLD! THEIR EXCITING ENERGY TAKES LITTLE EXPLORERS ON A DELIGHTFULLY UNFORGETTABLE ADVENTURE, AS PIXIE NARRATORS FILL THE AIR WITH SILLY SONGS, DAFT DANCING, FRENZIED FUN AND AN ABUNDANCE OF AUDIENCE INTERACTION. Starring a lively cast of lovable forest creatures, a unique blend of characteristic comedy, live music and lots of wonderful whimsy in the form of props and costumes, The Night that Autumn Turned to Winter is innovatively quirky. Little Bulb Theatre cleverly reinvent the idea of a traditional fairy tale, capturing the attention of little ones (and not so little ones) in a faultlessly crafted winter show that is perfect for all the family this festive season. Set on the last day of autumn, when frost begins to coat the crisp leaves that cover the forest floor, you’ll meet an ensemble of woodland animals who are waiting in eager anticipation of the knowledge that the winter season is slowly creeping in. Deep within the wild wood, creatures of all shapes and sizes are busy getting ready for the cold season ahead… During a frenzy of nest building and 34 nut gathering, meet the rabbits, feed the squirrels and find the Foxy Fox on the night that their world turns into a magical snow- shimmering wilderness. Be sure to keep your eye out for the super rare winter unicorn, too! Described by The Times as ‘one of Britain’s most refreshing young theatre companies’, Little Bulb Theatre have come a long way since they began at the University of Kent almost ten years ago. The award-winning company have become famous for creating a fuzzy feeling of heartwarmingly infectious delight wherever they go. Producing cleverly relevant shows and never resorting to clichés, The Night that Autumn Turned to Winter is praised by The Guardian for its wonderfully DIY aesthetic ‘that considers parents as much as kids…with entertainingly wry mock-David Attenborough commentary.’ Tickets are priced at £8 for adults, £6 for children and £25 for a family (2 adults, 2 children).
