Fairy Finding

Fairy Finding

Do you believe in fairies? Well maybe you should, because the frozen air at this year’s Silver Skate is full to the brim of
fairy magic. Fairy Finding returns for it’s second year at the festival to thrill you with more tall tales of the tiny folk and astonish you with some of Fizzlewit’s favorite fantastical friends. Created by internationally acclaimed performer and artist, Rupert Appleyard, Fairy Finding has a unique brand of whimsical wonderment that your family will adore. But be sure to bring your sense of humor, because nothing is more enchanting to a fairy’s ears… than the sound of your laughter.
