The antithesis of television, this floating theatre, moored in Little Venice, seats 55 and has all the comforts of a modern venue. Traditional, hand-carved marionettes are the storytellers, manipulated by skillful, sensitive
puppeteers. This spring invites audiences to The Insect Circus – courtesy of String Theatre.

Expect dramatic lighting and exquisitely composed music, punctuated by the ambient sounds of enraptured children.

Running time: 40 minutes
Suitable for everyone down to 3 year olds
