Sleeping Beauty


Blenheim Palace / Culture Creative 2023


The Brief

Following the success of the 2022’s Snow Queen and 2021’s Nutcracker we were excited to hear the theme for Culture Creative’s Christmas installations at Blenheim Palace. Sleeping Beauty seemed perfect – magical, whimsical and delightful with a strong story and sense of place. We couldn’t wait to get stuck in..!


What We Did

We recruited a team for lead, Rachel Fullegar, which had a fantastic blend of returning and new performers. Rachel was able to use movement and physicality to create character in the room – playing around with the idea of sleeping and how Aurora might have felt after being asleep for so long! Working with the amazing installations including giant four poster bed and cascading projections, we were able to create a series of magical encounters suitable for audiences of all ages.


The Result

We delivered another smooth season, with the team working well with the Blenheim Palace staff to provide magical moments for every visitor who stepped into the Long Gallery!
