Enter the world of myth and legends...


Fire spirits, golden winged angels, unicorns and mysterious cloaked figures are glimpsed in the distance.. Etherial music floats through the trees, giants fight on the lawns, characters appear and lead you off into the grounds,and deep into your imagination, drawing on archetypes and drawing you personally into a chain of interlinked stories and poems, . ...or is it all one story?


The nature of a Sylvan Fantasy is a true hybrid between promenade theatre, unusual outdoor concert, storytelling and art installation. Each Sylvan Fantasy is a unique bespoke performance inspired by, and integrated with the individual location. If this calls for a more Gothic edge, this can be incorporated in the show design, if it calls on woodland fantasy this will be strong, if epic otherworldlyness is highest this comes to the fore, classical worlds creep into the now...
