Coming to Heaton Park in September 2022, “The Lost Words: Told In Gold” is an outdoor theatre performance for all ages led by a flock of birds, featuring a massive goldfinch nest auditorium and soundtracked by Spell Songs, the stunning musical interpretations of Robert Macfarlane’s words and Jackie Morris’s illustrations.

Spells wrapped around trees, words to be discovered in the woodland, and lines of spells perched on branches like starlings.

With sound recordings of the spell poems from some of Britain’s famous voices of all ages and accents, Seek, Find, Speak came alive in 2018 and 2019, grew into “The Lost Words: Told In Gold” in 2019 and, following an enforced hibernation in 2020-21, has now woken from its slumber for a new updated production throughout 2022 and beyond.
