Join Hertford Theatre in the intimate, atmospheric surroundings of Southern Maltings this Christmas and immerse yourself in the ice-cold, snowy world of Lunavik; where even the moon is frozen!
A greedy dragon has gobbled up every fire and every light, leaving only the white glow of the frozen moon.
Under the glittering stars and dazzling aurora, Amka’s family are huddled together, fishing for eels and knitting plenty of hats!

Award-winning Half a String presents a tender folk story of love, friendship, and giving.
Beautiful songs are live looped, fun rhythmic poetry forms the tale, astonishing puppets, and breath-taking sets complete this stunning production.

Your Under the Frozen Moon experience begins as you push open the door to Southern Maltings and you enter a sparkling, magical world of ice and adventure.
Why not bring along your favourite woolly gloves and a cosy hat?
And after the show, you’ll have a chance to meet the characters and have your frosty photo taken with the amazing puppets!
It’s the perfect Christmas treat and we promise you’ll never want to leave the magical, mystical world of Under The Frozen Moon.

Supported by The Marlow, Canterbury and Arts Council England.
