Hidden Winter

Stand and Be Counted (SBC) Theatre, the UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary, and local children's theatre company, The Herd, announce Hidden Winter; an audio adventure for family audiences in association with Theatre in the Mill, Cast, Hull Truck Theatre and Oldham Coliseum Theatre, funded by Bradford Producing Hub and Arts Council England.

Hidden Winter follows 8-year-old Hiba, a mischievous cat, and a trail of winter clothes in a story celebrating the joys and difficulties of making friends in a new place. This brand-new adventure is designed to be experienced by audiences on mobile devices, whilst on walks in their local park, or at home, during national lockdown restrictions.
