About Huddle - Online

A wintry theatre treat for ages 2 - 5 created by Filskit Theatre

Huddle tells the moving tale of a daddy penguin and his new chick learning to thrive in spite of the odds. Narrated by Madeline Appiah, this new digital theatre experience uses instrumental music and beautiful hand drawn animation to bring this atmospheric, snow-filled story to life.

We're thrilled to have teamed up with Filskit Theatre to reimagine our wintry stage show from 2019, and to be able to share this gorgeous story far and wide.

Please note: Huddle is only available to watch if you are in the UK.
