The Lost Gift  is a new interactive family Christmas adventure, which invites children and families to step into a magical story that they walk through and help create. A host of charming characters will guide 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 will be created within the walls of the venue’s large Mead Gallery. The story and performance have been devised by Highly Sprung, a Coventry-based physical theatre company who make original work for children and young people that combines text and movement.  The challenge of transforming an art gallery into a fantastic wintry world is met by Vortex Creates, known for their large-scale costumes and event design.
