A Handful of Snow – magical interactive theatre experience

Amomo and Guido have travelled from afar to spend winter with their old friend Professor Jigget.

They arrive with warm excitable hearts, full of curiosity, and a simple gift that may or may not have survived their extraordinary travels.

See The World (and The Whitaker) through Guido and Amomo's eyes as they journey through our gallery and on into Professor Jigget's pied-a-terre & discovery emporium: the magical Coach House. Who knows, they may make some new friends along the way.

Specially made for The Whitaker, this new family promenade piece created by Goofus Theatre will combine clowning, puppetry and live music to bring a charming, funny and highly original festive offering to Rawtenstall this December.

Note: The show will contain minimal spoken language so is suitable for young audiences.
