Using paper cups, wooden sticks, and assorted bits and bobs, participants created their own puppet characters to perform with on Bluecoat Platform!
1-4pm, Fri 30 Jul and Wed 18 Aug 2021
This event was part of our summer family events programme which was chosen by children from Holy Cross School in Liverpool.
For four weeks throughout the summer holidays, families enjoyed FREE storytelling, music, comedy for kids, designed to engage children of all ages.
"I’m Alice, and I’ll help you bring your puppets to life!"
Alice is a performer, puppeteer and puppet maker based in Liverpool. She has worked for companies such as Headstrung Puppets, Oldham Coliseum, Little Angel Theatre, and Horse and Bamboo.
“I’m so excited to be making and creating again. We’ll be using simple materials to create colourful characters. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!”
What was Bluecoat Platform?
Located in our front courtyard, this family-friendly outdoor sculpture was designed by children for children! Our after school arts club Out of the Blue worked with artists Simon & Tom Bloor to come up with this fun, interactive sculpture for the whole family to enjoy.
In Summer 2021, the sculpture became a stage for our entire family events programme!
