Welcome to the HORSE + BAMBOO WEBSITE where you can find out about our work and see what’s on at the Boo – plus book your tickets!
“Horse + Bamboo Theatre are a national treasure.” The Puppet Master
H+B are 37 years old; we started our life in Rossendale, Lancashire, England, and in Rossendale we remain. In 2015 we work in many of the same ways we did in 1978, with masks, puppets, music, film and story-telling being at the heart of our theatre. The company doesn’t work to any formula, and we develop and re-shape ourselves to meet new and changing circumstances.
We now have a wonderful base, the Boo, in Waterfoot, Rossendale, which is large enough to serve as a venue for theatre shows and other arts events of our own making and from visiting companies and artists. The Boo enables us to offer the community in Rossendale and beyond a special place to meet, create and share.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE A PAUSE IN THE BOO EVENTS PROGRAMME BETWEEN MARCH AND JUNE 2015 AS IMPROVEMENT WORK IS TAKING PLACE IN OUR THEATRE SPACE.
WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED BUT WE’LL BE OPENING AGAIN ON 4th/5th JULY 2015 FOR OUR ANNUAL PUPPET FESTIVAL.
SEATING CAPACITY WILL BE INCREASED FROM 70 TO 100, AND NEW SEATS WILL PROVIDE BETTER SIGHT-LINES OF THE STAGE AREA. FRONT ACCESS TO THE THEATRE, OUR STUDIO SPACE, AND THE CAFE AREA WILL ALSO BE IMPROVED.
OUR OFFICE AND WORKSHOPS WILL REMAIN OPEN.
