The Lost Gift was an interactive family Christmas adventure, which invited children and families to step into a magical story, which they walk through and help create. A host of charming characters guided visitors on a beautifully designed journey through the wintery woods, deep underground, up into the sky and away to a land of snow, on a quest to solve the mystery of The Lost Gift .
The world of The Lost Gift was created within the walls of Warwick Arts Centre's large Mead Gallery. The story and performances were devised by Highly Sprung. The challenge of transforming an art gallery into a fantastic wintry world was met by Vortex Creates, known for large-scale costumes and event design.
"It’s a well-constructed piece: an enjoyable experience for an afternoon of festive fun, but also educational, full of creative magic spun by this wonderful company."
"Absolutely magical! A great introduction to interactive theatre for our nearly 4 year old daughter who thoroughly enjoyed it. Well a truly put us in the Christmas spirit! Thank you!"
"It’s a real triumph and while I don’t want to give the ending away, I will say that it was perfectly apt for the spirit of Christmas and left us feeling like we had a warm glow to transport home and share with our family and friends."
