A Winter's Trail

Book this event

A Winter's Trail begins with a white hair ribbon found on the ground…

A playful journey through the cathedral after dark following a trail of winter memories and magic in a story that joyously weaves together childhood and old age.    Laughter, lights, singing, dancing, winter flowers and snow in the air…

We invite you to experience the Cathedral as you have never seen it before.  An evening, not to be missed, for children, teenagers and adults alike.

Hoodwink have created a unique performance offering an opportunity to explore and experience Salisbury Cathedral after dark as never before.

Hoodwink brought together primary school children and care home residents across the city of Salisbury to share memories and thoughts of winter to inspire and create snowy effects together for the show. The professional cast are joined by a host of volunteers from both the Salisbury and cathedral community, including Wellington School of Dance and Mind the Gap, making use of their skills in floristry, ballroom dancing, singing and performing to name but a few.

Hoodwink are company in residence at Salisbury Arts Centre and have been creating original and inventive work for almost twenty years, indoors, outdoors, touring at home and abroad, in response to specific sites and both with and without participation from across the age ranges. A delightful and magical body of work driven by the desire to create high quality, thought provoking and innovative work accessible to all.   twitter:@hoodwinktheatre
