Coach Visit | Horse + Bamboo Theatre Company

Monday 24 April 2017 - 10:15 until 16:00

Horse + Bamboo is a truly fascinating puppet and mask theatre started in 1978 and based in Rossendale, Lancashire.

After coffee on arrival, the group will tour the workshops where the wonderful puppets and masks are created, followed by a movie of their shows and a delicious light lunch. In the afternoon, visit the nearby David Pearson Trust for a tour of this unusual studio, with one of the trustees. David died in 2008 leaving behind thousands of wonderful artworks. He was a friend of artist Don McKinlay and the Manchester Art School group.

This event has been organised by the Merseyside Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
