Lempen Puppet Theatre

14th June 2018

As an opener to an Arts Enrichment Week, we couldn't get much more magical than a visit from the Lempen Puppet Theatre.  With no dialogue and set to music of The carnival of the Animals, by Charles-Camille Saint-Saëns, the deceptively simple set unfolded to reveal the most amazing cardboard puppets, brought to life by Liz and Daniel Lempen.  There were dancing tortoises, glittering fish, a roaring lion and even a mischievous elephant, to name a few of the many characters.  It wasn't just the children who were enthralled by the show, and everyone was left with a smile on their face and the inspiration to make their very own puppet.
