Missing the Moomins

06Feb14

And here’s another item of wonder via Clive Jenkins Hicks blog. I wish I’d seen the Moomins in Bath. The Horse and Bamboo puppets look really true to Tove’s original drawings.

Clive Hicks-Jenkins' Artlog:

Hello, Peter Slight of the Puppet Challenge here,

I was recently delighted to discover that Tove Jansons‘ wonderful Moomins were to appear in puppet form on stage in the UK for the very first time in a production of ‘Moominland Midwinter‘ at the Theatre Royal in Bath. That is until I realised I had missed it – darn it!

I cherished the Moomin books as a child and still do, so seeing this would have been a real thrill, but it was not meant to be. I have posted some pictures I found online of what was i’m sure, an amazing production.

The puppets were made by Horse + Bamboo
