Festive Thra-athon!

On the 17th December 1982, Jim Henson's 'The Dark Crystal' premiered. So we thought we would celebrate this 38th anniversary with another action packed Thra-Athon virtual event! This time with a festive twist. 


With help from our friends at The Angle of Eternity, & Artist Eliane Torralba we will be bringing you competitions, raffles, quizzes, guest talks & more! 

Fan Art

Holiday Card Contest 

We would love for you to design a Dark Crystal inspired Holiday card! The top 3 card designs will be made into real life holiday cards and sold here to raise funds for future Dark Crystal events, activities & Charities. We have a VERY special guest judge and the winners will get an amazing prize! More on that coming soon..

To give you some inspiration, here's the beautiful winter design by talented artist Eliane Torralba titled 'Mystic Celebration'. This will also be available to purchase as a Holiday card from Eliane's Etsy page.
