The Wood Beneath The World

The Wood Beneath The World
Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  06/11/2014

Winter has arrived at Leeds Town Hall. Down in The Crypt a mysterious winterland is emerging. Trees have begun to errupt from the floor, branches brush shoulders and piles of lichen covered logs have appeared overnight. This magical place is The Wood Beneath The World and, from 15 November - 24 December, the wood will be open to visitors who want to tread a wintery path of folklore, myth and enchantment. 

During the day The Wood Beneath The World will be a place for families and children to explore and unearth its secrets. Along a path, around a corner and next to a thousand year old tree visitors will be met by Father Christmas in the Woodcutters Cabin where he'll share stories of The Wood, the creatures he's met and the magic he knows. 

We've heard that nightfall in The Wood is a place where things are not quite as they seem and instincts will need to be trusted as you make the journey from one side of The Wood to the other. This time of night in The Wood is for anyone (aged 12+ years) who is inquisitive about all things curious; and who aren't afraid of the mischief in magic. Watch the spine tingling film teaser for the The Wood Beneath The World evening experience here:

The Wood Beneath The World has been created for Leeds Town Hall by Leeds based design company Lord Whitney who make installations, sets, props and anything in between. We think its going to be amazing and can't wait to explore the undiscovered.
