THE FORGOTTEN VILLAGE

1/11
A festive promenade performance that took place around Kingston, Surbiton and Tolworth in December 2020.
We wanted to put a little magic onto the streets in December 2020 so we created The Forgotten Village, a promenade performance around the local area. Our audience ‘bubbles’ met some famous characters from pantomime, folk stories and Christmas as they helped to bring a lost Traveller into the healing light of The Forgotten Village. The story celebrates kindness, warm heartedness and generosity at a time when those emotions and behaviours are most needed.

The Forgotten Village took groups on promenade routes allowing them to explore parts of their local area which they may not have visited before whilst creating new magical memories for them to carry. The routes in Kingston, Surbiton and Tolworth revealed a series of hidden locations where our audiences met The Traveller, The Fairy Godmother, The Ugly Sister, Rumpelstiltskin and the Wise Old Man who gave them a tale of  kindness and magic to pass on to others.

‘Thank you for this, it has been truly magical and one of the best Christmas experiences we have had as a family. It reminded us of what is really special and important.’
