Cardboard Carnival is inspired by the music of Camille Saint-Saens, from his "Carnival of the animals"orchestral piece. The story is told with puppets, which explores with imaginative, spellbinding, surprising and sometimes bonkers story telling. The Lempen Puppet Theatre Company, is based in North Yorkshire and have been performing for over thirty years, all across Europe. So good family entertainment, not to be missed!
This event is hosted by Crowland Abbey
