"Magic is for those who wish to see it. That's what Grandma says."
Meet Robin Armstrong. An adventurous young girl who is obsessed with all things magic.
Robin lives in a northern village famous for its fairy tale and folklore. Since the day she was born,
Robin’s best friend, Grandma, has told her legendary tales of the fairies, hobs, wizards and trolls that hide in the forest and beneath the surface.
When Grandma’s health takes a turn for the worse on Christmas Eve, an extraordinary adventure begins. Robin heads to Elderwood Forest in search of magical creatures that could help her Grandma and if the fairy tales are true, she’ll have to journey into the abandoned mines to find them. What waits in these mines is an undiscovered world beyond Robin’s wildest dreams.
Join Robin as she discovers magic, good and bad but more importantly, the power of friendship and kindness. Can she save her Grandma just in time for Christmas?
A modern fairy tale with a message fit for the festive period. It’s a magical show for all the family to enjoy!
