BMW Group Plant Oxford


Hans Christian Andersen’s enchanting tale of intrigue, adventure and the healing power of friendship was brought to life at a new venue inside BMW Group Plant Oxford. Ice filled landscapes, created using corrugated plastics, formed the backdrop for this magical tale which capitalized on the vast stage area of the Info Centre.

Directed by Charlotte Conquest and set to a delightful score from composer Peter Lole, this folklore classic attracted audiences of over 12,500.
