Dates & Prices

In the beginning of years, when the world was so new, the four seasons lined up to get their cloaks and crowns, their colours and their toys. When it came time for Winter there was nothing left except a wet white blanket which made him so sad that he pulled it over his head and wouldn’t come out to play…until a little boy took him on a journey through a garden of delights, climbing the ladder of the trees up to a shining star… 

LYNGO Theatre have developed a show that you can actually do at home, not just watch! By following our fun instructional videos in the weeks leading up to Christmas you’ll make props and table-top sets from recycled materials and household objects, invent your own sensory sessions and take a creative-play journey together as a family through a garden of delights.

We’ll provide music, songs and narration so you can tell the story of how Winter got its colours, using household objects and your own Christmas tree (with some very special decorations). At the end of this you’ll have made, played and stayed together which, after all, is the true meaning of Christmas!

A creative-play project for families with children under 10.
