A group of mysterious hooded figures make their way through the crowds, accompanied by two huge dragons. Out of place and out of time, they bring messages from the past…but do we have the ears to hear them in our modern world? With spectacular lantern puppets, Headstrung deliver a visual feast to entrance and delight all ages.
2 x 30min shows, starting at 20:45 & 21:45.
Headstrung Puppets are a Liverpool-based company specialising in interactive street theatre, walkabout and puppet cabaret. Their work is lively and entertaining, with strong visuals and attention to detail.
Developed with support from Arts Council England, this is the first time that ‘Here be Dragons’ is performed as a night-time lantern show.
