Idolrich presents Forest of Fables.

Tickets £4.00 all for the performance, £3.50 for the workshop.

Is the North Wind or the Sun the stronger?

This contest makes every leaf shudder.  But once the sun is out – fantastic puppet inhabitants materialise before your eyes to caw, roar and “Eeeyore” their dilemmas with gnats, pitchers, high heels and – who or what is the biggest cheese of all in the Forest of Fables?  Ancient tales from Aesop that make sense of today’s story performed with puppets, music and your imagination.

“Excellent and unique. Wonderful animals created with beautiful and inventive imagery”

 Answer. Persuasion is better than force.

A workshop accompanies the performance and the participants (with a parent or an adult) will make puppet characters from the show, learn the songs and then get to join in with the actual live show. Participants take their puppets away to get puppeteering at home! The workshop starts at 12.15pm and finishes at 1.30pm with a 1 hour break for lunch before the start of the show.

Suitable for age 4 plus.
