Beowulf Puppet Show

Be captivated by Beowulf in the beautiful gardens of Rochester Cathedral

Rattlebox Theatre presents part of the famous Anglo-Saxon epic ‘BEOWULF’ in this small but perfectly formed adaption! This show employs engaging storytelling, combined with clever puppetry; using many beautifully made puppets, sets and props. The performance is accompanied by early music maestro Steve Tyler- creating an evocative live soundtrack playing instruments including Anglo- Saxon lyre, hurdy gurdy, harp and percussion.

Suitable for 7 years to adult. (WARNING- contains some scenes of graphic puppet violence)

"A gripping retelling of Beowulf in painstakingly created miniature. My daughter, who is as unimpressed with swords and sorcery as it is humanly possible to be, was as awestruck as I by this presentation." Andy Terney

This event will take place in the Garth at Rochester Cathedral. No seating will be provided. Attendees are asked to bring blankets to sit on and to ensure they dress for the weather. Chairs and stalls will not be permitted
