!FESTIVE ANNOUNCEMENT KLAXON!

The Walking Theatre Company is delighted to be performing at the stunning Blenheim Palace this Festive Season, for the 2016 #ChristmasAtBlenheim event!

The estate will be illuminated for an unforgettable after dark festive trail along winding paths, beside tranquil waters and through extraordinary Parkland. A spectacular site-specific Christmas production has been created by TWTC’s very own Sadie Dixon-Spain, and we are thrilled to once again be working with our fantastic friends at Culture Creature.

With rehearsals well underway, we would like to introduce you to our first ever Christmas at Blenheim Cast! We are delighted to welcome Alexandra Ford, Owen Frost, Gavin Moore, and Bethany Goodman to team TWTC – and what a elf-tacular bunch they are!

Our Last Show at Kew!

Today saw the last performance of ‘When Twilight Falls’ our Grotto show at Christmas at Kew. A fabulous experience, thoroughly enjoyed by all, and we  mean that. Creative on so many levels, challenging, uplifting, frustrating, absorbing, and inspiring. Thank you to the magnificent team TWTCUKSouth, John Love, Abigail Poulton, Jake Waring, Alyson Elizabeth Butcher, Tanya Lewis. Can’t wait to work with you all again. Also a massive thank you to team Culture Creative, led by the epic Mz Zoe Bottrell and her extraordinary team, Claire Elliot, Jez Light, Pablo Lane, Jez Hellens, Daniel Pearson, Ellie Thompson, AJ Hammerton, Dan Fox (and everyone we have missed), who made us all feel so very welcome and part of a FAB team. Thank you all. We hope we see you next year, with glittery baubles on! Huzzah!
