On Sunday Thea, James and I took Nanna to Redcar and Cleveland's first puppet festival. It was a brilliant day and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We had tickets for two performances - "The Worm that Squirmed" and "Each Peach Pear Plum". Both performance were just great. As well as the performances there were puppet shows for one, craft sessions, storytelling and the Yorkshire Olympics - very funny!
Thea was so inspired by the puppet shows she produced her own little show when we returned to Nanna's house. The show - The Naughty Chicken - was hilarious and had a great story line. It was amazing seeing just how much she had learnt from watching the puppeteers at work. We are all hoping the festival is repeated next year.
The worm that squirmed
One of the many beautiful puppets from The Worm that Squirmed.
Three minute theatre for one. Thea mesmerized by Dan's Baby (Dan the World's First pregnant Man). It all looks a bit strange I know but honestly it was quite harmless.
James takes his first deep sea dive!
