All of our performances will feature galleries. We'll also be capturing behind-the-scenes images, scenery/prop builds and anything else we think you might find interesting!


Brockhole - Lakes Alive Festival 2019

The premiere of The Lost Words: Told In Gold, the new incarnation of our production - and what a setting! Our enormous goldfinch nest theatre space nestled by the woods on the banks of Lake Windermere. Glorious.

Barnes Children’s Literature Festival

First festival of 2019 - stunning venue, great event, and the audiences were lovely. Roll on the rest of 2019!

Hulme Community Garden Centre

The goldfinches performed in this quiet oasis at the heart of Manchester city centre - the sun shone (yet again) on their last appearance of the year.

Just So Festival 2018

Wild Rumpus's family friendly festival in the beautiful Enchanted Forest of Rode Hall - the perfect setting for our goldfinches to conjure back The Lost Words.

The Power Of Words Festival 2018

Normanby Hall provided a spectacular backdrop to Robert Macfarlane’s spells and Jackie Morris’s illustrations brought to life.

TIMBER Festival 2018

"The Lost Words: Seek Find Speak" premiered at TIMBER Festival on July 6th 2018. Three days, five goldfinches, ten performances, thirty degree heat, hundreds of spells conjured

Latitude Festival 2018

No sooner had we returned from TIMBER, it was straight off to the amazing Latitude Festival, where the goldfinches charmed under the boughs of a magical horse chestnut tree.
