A puppet show which will enthral all aged from four to 104 is being held at Swaffham Community Centre on Sunday, starting at 3pm.

Shoe Kangaroo and the Big, Bad Boot is a strapping tale filled with shoes, which promises to be a delightful old load of cobblers.

The highly acclaimed Garlic Theatre return to Swaffham with yet another delightful puppet tale for the whole family which will take you on a fantastical journey to the island of lost shoes with clowning, mime and and beautifully crafted puppets.

The show is part of Swaffham Art’s year-long programme of high-quality arts events and tickets at £7 for members, £10 non-members and children free are available on the door or from Ceres Bookshop and The Green Parrot in Swaffham.

Founded in 1996, Garlic Theatre is a visual theatre company that uses image, puppet animation, movement and live music to create theatre productions of artistic excellence.

Productions have reached young audiences in theatres, festivals, art centres and schools throughout the United Kingdom and have toured 15 international countries, winning five awards in International Puppet Festivals.

Garlic Theatre aims to challenge, entertain and stimulate people of all ages through work which encourages imaginative play and develops a new awareness of the power of puppet animation.

Here’s a poetic introduction to the show:

Did you ever lose a shoe?

that tumbled into a bird that flew

over the sea to an island new

where creatures strange and mysterious grew

from a wondrous, magical Shoe Kangaroo.
