Rhubarb Launches free online interactive stories for children and Young People in Lockdown.

We wanted to create some fun, free and interactive Drama provisions for children during Lockdown. The idea for the Hugo Interactive Stories was born! Each of these videos 'Hugo's Jungle Adventure' & 'Hugo in Space' was written, filmed and edited by Rhubarb in a week... in Lockdown! Filming took place in a conservatory and the cast could only make use of things from around the house.


These videos include the whole Rhubarb staff team, with two of the staff living together in a 'bubble' and the other team members filming their bits independently from home before being edited together. We hope you enjoy!

We are proud to be a 'COVID secure' business.
