We’re thrilled that a new digital edition of the hit show, The Forest of Forgotten Discos is back for Christmas 2020. With just a few tickets left for the 11 am performance – make sure you get booked in today.

Bringing the fun right into the heart of your homes, The Forest of Forgotten Discos is a playful and inclusive family show recommended for ages 4 and up. Written by poet, comedian and theatre-maker Jackie Hagan, the show was a huge hit when it premiered at Hope Mill Theatre in 2018 as part of Contact’s In the City season.

This is the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as you have never seen it before. In this new digital version of the show, the three bears, Red and Alexa ( a digital helper from the Amazon jungle) will be beamed straight to your screens for a Zoom-based dance party.

A playful and inclusive family show recommended for ages 4 and up.

Packed with larger-than-life characters and full of adventure. Audiences will meet Bear Hug, a bear with a big secret, Bear Minimum, who has a really untidy bedroom, and Bear Grills who struggles to keep a cool head. Showing off all of their best dance moves – little movers and groovers are encouraged to dance along with the characters too.

Additionally, selected families will be invited to be part of the ‘Zoom Room’ and will get to feature in the performance too. Interactive and entertaining, families will also be invited to craft their very own set of bear ears, make a bear den and learn to sing and sign the Forest song too.

Little movers and groovers are encouraged to dance along with the characters too.

Exploring themes of acceptance, family and adventure, The Forest of Forgotten Discos! will feature sign language, visual storytelling and creative integration of audio description. Contact have also included audio descriptions spoken by each character on their website, which audiences can listen to before the performance.

Inclusive and entertaining – this digital version of the hit show is guaranteed to be fun for everyone…and you don’t even have to leave your living room.
