A vibrant and charming family show, full of music and dancing, celebrating the magic of nature.

Adapted from the bestselling book that has delighted and inspired people of all ages, that was ‘written to be read aloud’, by globally renowned writer Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris. The Lost Spells is for anyone who wants to celebrate and save the natural world around us before it’s lost forever. Moving, joyful, and funny, The Lost Spells celebrates the magic of nature that could be just outside your window.  A fun adventure full of paw-tapping music and dancing, played live on-stage by actor-musicians, the show is a riot of colour and a new Alice in Wonderland. The book is a kindred spirit to the international bestseller and multi-award winning The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris.

A girl with no name finds a magical book of spells that conjures up a wild world. Moths appear from nowhere; Owls light up the dark; a Red Fox leads the way down a rabbit hole to a brand-new wonderland. As she journeys through the wild world she learns the dandelion time, meets a boy who turns into a seal, flies with band of jackdaws and battles with conkers - on a quest to find that which was once lost. 


Jonathan Charles, Toby De Salis, Paula James, Miriam Nyarko, and Lucy Yates
