In can sometimes feel as if the year is racing away with us, and this is certainly the case for Travelling Light Theatre Company’s show, How Cold My Toes, which will be condensing an entire year into a their family show at ARC on Saturday 17 May.

How Cold My Toes will take young audiences through an enchanting of dance theatre, where the seed-sprouting vitality of spring and the frosty frozen fingers of winter sweep across the stage before their very eyes.

Both children and adults will be captivated by the combination of Travelling Light’s renowned brand of performance, music and design with amazing urban choreography.

This show was originally co-produced in 2009 with Bristol Old Vic and Champloo Dance Company, when it toured with great success and critical acclaim. It’s a must-see show for anyone who’s loved our other collaborations Boing! and Varmints.


This charming show bursts with a heightened sense of fun.

Any piece of theatre which has my 23 month old spellbound for 50 minutes, mouth hanging open and uttering “Oooooh” every now and again, must have it nailed – thank you for an utterly enchanting show which was even more beautiful to watch for us adults! …If only all children’s theatre was this good.
