Snow covers the land, darkness has settled in to stay. This is the magical story of a little girl’s adventure to bring back the Sun.



Winter winds are blowing, the storytellers are coming, bringing magic from the far north. They carry with them a wonderful, heartwarming winter story of a little girl’s adventure to bring back the Sun and save her family.

Warm in their cozy house, a family waits for the days to grow longer and spring to arrive. But one day the Sun doesn’t rise. When it doesn’t rise the next day or the next and Darkness settles in to stay, they realize someone has stolen the Sun!

Filled with live music, stunning imagery, playful storytelling and all the goodness of the season.

This is the perfect winter treat for everyone over 5

Welcome to The Magic Bookshop! It’s a treasure trove of wonders where old books flock together and their stories hop from the pages.

Peter and John work at the new arrivals desk. Great heaps of books have to be sorted and catagorised and sometimes sent to the dreaded shredder.

The two friends do their very best to make sure every book gets a new life and that none of the magic is lost.

Step inside this unusual shop, swap a book and maybe even take a little of the magic home with you.

For everyone over 5.
