After two sell-out evening shows last year, Another Winter’s Tale returns to Whitby’s Flowergate Hall on 26th November 2023 for a matinee at 4 p.m.

Another Winter’s Tale from the award-winning Dogwood Productions CIC will be touring villages and small towns in Yorkshire, Cleveland and Redcar in November.

It is a winter’s night. The storm outside gets ever louder. Two travelling entertainers, strangers, are trapped, unable to move on but unwilling to stay. Outside, a presence moves closer. Inside, they share the tales of distant times and faraway lands. Waiting. Who are they, what’s their story? Friends, innocents, showmen, or something a little more intriguing? Only time will tell.

A Winters Tale

What to expect?

Produced especially for the winter, the show is rich in original live music, puppetry, humour, songs, and an enthralling story. It includes shadow puppets, hand puppets, marionettes and a Kamishibai, a traditional Japanese street theatre. Though it is suitable for children above eight years old, don’t be fooled by the idea of puppetry. It is, above all, a ghost story!

The show draws upon tales of the deepest winter from the frozen North, across Europe and Asia to Japan and much nearer home. The stories could not be more diverse: from the joyful to the dark, the new and the familiar, all performed by the company of travelling strangers. It’s also a celebration of seasonal songs, including the show’s composition, which was released to raise funds for the Crisis at Christmas charity.


Tickets are £12.50 (£7.50 for under 18s) and are available online now and from The Magpie’s Kitchen on Golden Lion Bank.

And if you can’t make this date, check out Sleights on the 11th November, Goathland on the 14th November or one of the other venues; details are on their website.

A quote from an audience member at a previous performance of this show:

‘What a surprise! Didn’t know what to expect. I won’t ruin the play by telling you what it is about but I can tell you is that if you want good fire side tales with wit and good humour, songs with excellent harmonies then do find the time to unwind and relax away a few hours of your busy lives to be entertained.’
