Christmas Markets – a festive gift from Big Telly (Thurs 8 Dec)

A live, digital adventure to two Christmas markets in two different countries all at once (Munich and Belfast). In between the stalls of roast chestnuts and mulled wine hides a story of strangers and secrecy, of dark mischief beautifully wrapped. Expect close encounters, mysterious codes and unfinished messages.

Experience this sassy spree where the familiar meets the festive from the comfort of your own home, where the tale unfolds using technology, theatre, webcams, and live streaming. Lapland on your laptop…

Created by Andrea Geipel (Digital Storytelling), Tim Reid (Video Designer), and Zoe Seaton (Artistic Director Big Telly).

Funded by Creative Scotland Four Nations International project.

RIGHT UP YOUR STREET is back this December. Expect storytelling, story scooters, portable theatre, festive treats and a visit from Santa. This is a private event delivered in partnership with Radius Housing.
