A summary
Join The Bright Foundation at their Barn Theatre and Museum in rural Hastings for a week-long creative adventure working with the fabulous Long Nose Puppets! This is a wonderful introduction to puppetry from an award-winning and critically acclaimed professional puppet company. Develop your skills in puppetry, performance, art, and design. At the end of the week there will be a performance to families and friends. About Long Nose Puppets Long Nose was co-founded in 2006 by Katherine Morton and well-known children’s author and illustrator Polly Dunbar. Katherine and Polly make the puppets out of anything and everything: latex, wood, found objects, socks, old umbrellas and the odd lampshade. The puppets range in size from handheld rod puppets to full body costumes. The company works with a company of musicians , performers and makers to create their fun filled shows. This project will be lead by Long Nose puppeteers Annie Brooks, Lisa Mills, and Sophie Ellen Powell, who between them have a wealth of experience creating shows. ***This activity has been funded through the Department for Education’s (DfE) Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme and coordinated by East Sussex County Council. Fully funded places are available for young people eligible for benefits-related free school meals. This eligibility criteria has been defined by the DfE. Additionally young people in several other target cohorts can attend funded places, such as those with SEND or Looked After Children (LAC). Please note, eligibility will be confirmed as part of the booking process.***
