HIDDEN WINTER

'I’ve got a story to tell you. It’s a story that, up until now, has been hidden away. Nobody’s heard it.

 

It’s a story that happened near to where you’re sitting right now. It’s a story about the people and places right on your doorstep…'

 

Join 8-year-old Hiba, a mischievous cat, and a trail of winter clothes to discover a brand new audio adventure that celebrates the joys and difficulties of making a new friend. 

 

An exciting, new story-walk adventure co-created with young sanctuary seekers in Bradford, made for children everywhere and their grownups. Pop on your headphones, join us for a very special stroll around your local park and rediscover the magic of your surroundings.

 

Free and available in English and Arabic from 19th February 2021.

ACCESSIBILITY

HIDDEN WINTER is available in English and Arabic. HIDDEN WINTER is best experienced on a walk at your local park, but we understand that this might not be possible for everyone, so it's possible to listen along and enjoy at home. 

A captioned version of the story can be enjoyed on the 'instructions page' of the HIDDEN WINTER website. 

If you want to avoid using your phone data you can download the podcast version of HIDDEN WINTER on the 'instructions page' of the website. Just download onto your phone using wifi, then hit play - everything else will be explained when you start
