Meet Alice

"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!”
Alice Rowbottom

What is 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.

This summer the sculpture is becoming a stage for our entire family events programme!
