Flotsam & Jetsam

Flotsam floats, Jetsam sinks
Both their worlds are on the brinks,
The jagged arcs of waves and sharks
Chase them both in minds and hearts.
They must break through their tears and fears
And worries of a thousand years,
To find what’s true and out of the blue
Discover the other and a friend that’s new.

Flotsam is soft, flexible, laid back. She slides and glides through life on the ice.
Jetsam is the opposite, his insectile body is stiff and nervy, alert and watchful, suspicious of all in his forest home.
And then comes the weather… and they are both cast adrift in a world that is strange to them and full of a range of dangers. Finally washed up on the same island beach they must discover the other and work out how they can work together.

A hopeful, adventure story about two very different creatures that must learn to work together.

Visual theatre with original music and delightful puppetry.

Woodland Tales with Grandad

Something is happening in the woods, voices can be heard, and a strange metallic smell fills the air. Machines are gathering at its edge and a mysterious call is heard across the valley. Laura the ladybird, Jeffrey the spider, Brett the Woodlouse and Willoughby the Woodpecker are worried. Velda the Vixen knows there’s a one person who can help them – Granddad. But is there enough time? Can they save the wood? And will the mystery stranger help?

Featuring a cast of extraordinary puppets, this uproarious family show not only entertains, but has an important and timely environmental message to share.

Christmas in the Valley

Emmeline views the world in black and white. No room for colour, no time to waste on celebrations. She doesn’t like Christmas. She doesn’t like people that much either. And now, just as she’s settling down for a really miserable Christmas Eve, new visitors just keep turning up on her door step (or out of her fireplace)… and perhaps you’re one of them?
Horse + Bamboo’s retelling of a Christmas story, in a very familiar setting, will take you on a whirlwind adventure that will keep Christmas in your heart all the year.
An immersive adventure through Rossendale Valley at Christmas, brought to life with animation, puppetry & live music.
