The Nixies of Oakpool
“If you haven’t seen a Nixie before (which is not so surprising because these days, sightings are very, very rare indeed) they are awfully difficult to describe.”
This interactive story uses animation, puppetry, lights and music to retell how the illuminations really came about! How years ago, a magical oak forest inhabited by multi-coloured Nixies was destroyed by humans and how each year we try to entice them back, but nothing quite compares to a Nixie light show!
This family-friendly performance lasts around 15-minutes and is preceded by a short mask-making workshop designed to help children (and adults) to join in with the storytelling.
*If you would like to take part in the mask-making workshop, please arrive 15 minutes early before the performance.
Great for children 5+
