Monkey! is a new puppet show created by the acclaimed touring company, PuppetCraft, and it’s coming to the Eden Project this weekend of January 24 and 25.
The show is performed with beautifully hand carved wooden puppets and visitors also take part in puppet-making workshops throughout the weekend (times are available on the Eden Project website).
The puppet show was adapted from an ancient Chinese story called Journey to the West by poet and former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen.
The magical tale follows a mischievous monkey who can fly on a cloud, turn invisible and is in search of a great secret.
The performance of Monkey! will be in the Core building on both days at 11am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm. Each performance lasts an hour and will be followed by an informal “meet the puppets” session – it’s perfect for ages four and above.
