Giant Puppets Come to Leicester Cathedral

Leave a comment

The puppets had a great time helping out at the Leicester Cathedral’s Christingle Service. St Martin’s House was a perfect base to get the puppeteers into their costumes even if exiting through the doors was a little tricky for the giants!

Before the service the puppets greeted people as they arrived!

These beautiful Christingle candles had all been lovingly made ready to be distributed to those who came.

During the service the Giants performed the Nativity Play

The puppets also helped carry in all the separate parts of a ‘Giant’ Christingle candle which was put together by Rosy Fairhurst from the Cathedral and Rachel Parkinson from Birstall Methodist Church who explained the significance of each part.
