News Story

It is a complete delight to share, that Farnham Maltings associate company Little Bulb won an Olivier Award for Best Family Show with their production of Wolf Witch Giant Fairy – which they made last Christmas for the Royal Opera House. Farnham Maltings have been producing Little Bulb since they left Kent University over 10 years ago. During that time they have made work for Bristol Old Vic and Battersea Arts Centre, taken shows to Australia and Austria, made two shows for village halls, presented at least five shows at the Edinburgh Festival and are now working with the National Theatre.

Wolf Witch Giant Fairy, a wild folk opera of music, mischief and magic, was a collaboration between The Royal Opera at the Linbury Theare in December 2021.
