Leicester Giant Puppets | The Dress Rehearsal



Fantastic dress rehearsal last night at Birstall Methodist Church. The puppeteers were getting into the swing of things and the puppets together for the first time looked amazing!! We reckon over 15 different groups have been involved in the creation of these big friendly giants and we can’t wait for their debut at the Leicester Christmas Lights Switch on at 3.30pm on Sunday November 16th 2014 in the Town Hall Square. The puppets will put on a fabulous re-telling of the Nativity Story – suitable for all ages – we would love to see you there!
