Huddle - digital theatre

Our hugely popular wintry show recreated for young audiences to enjoy at home.

  • Created by Filskit Theatre

Our hugely popular wintry show recreated for young audiences to enjoy at home.

We're delighted to have teamed up with Filskit Theatre to reimagine our 2019 Christmas hit show Huddle as a brand new digital theatre experience, and to be partnering with The Guardian once again to share this gorgeous story far and wide.

Huddle is a moving tale of a daddy penguin and his new chick learning how to thrive in spite of the odds. This online version, narrated by Madeline Appiah, uses instrumental music and beautiful hand-drawn animation to bring this atmospheric, snow-filled story to life.

As part of Unicorn Online, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering a range of free online theatrical experiences that we hope will be enjoyed by children across London, the UK and beyond.

Huddle is free to watch on our YouTube channel and the Guardian's website until 31 March 2020.
