Horse + Bamboo is a puppet and mask theatre company that has survived the ebb and flow of public finance with remarkable resilience and a clear sense of purpose. The company’s modest beginnings in 1978 with Bob Frith and a small team of artists along with a horse, a donkey, caravans with bamboo and papier-mache props has evolved into a vibrant theatre company firmly committed to serving the community of Pennine Lancashire as well as touring productions for adults and children nationally and internationally.
