THE GREAT BIG NOISE FESTIVAL: FIRESIDE TALES WITH GRANDAD

Captivating storytelling with puppets for children aged 4+

  • Pickled Image Ltd presents
  • 4 June 2016
  • The Studio

Cuddle up around the campfire as Granddad recalls a daring escape from a hungry shark. Tuck into a marshmallow or two as he attempts to make a new set of underpants for a giant. And watch as the shadows between the trees unravel a tale of greedy goblins, grumpy trolls, sneaky princes and a very unusual princess.

Exquisite puppets, captivating storytelling, beautiful shadow puppetry combine to create an enchanting show guaranteed to spark the imagination of everyone from 4-104. 

"Fantastic interaction with the audience, quizzing the children with brilliant conversation throughout. Another sold-out performance by Pickled Image, all audience left with a smile asking when Granddad would be back." The Pound in Corsham

" Fireside Tales with Grandad was charming and engaged our audience young and old throughout with its well placed storytelling." Louise Dancey, Salisbury Playhouse
