There was once a wide, windswept place, near nowhere and close to forgotten,

The Tin Forest Show: A Puppet Theatre Experience
24 July - 3 August, between 2 & 6pm
The Tin Forest is the story of a crabbit wee man who dreams of a better world and decides he’ll just have to build it himself. Graham McLaren’s adaptation entices audience members (in gaggles of ten at a time) behind the walls of a magically transformed South Rotunda, on a walk through the old man’s weird and wonky world. An oddball cast of lovable bampots and eccentric puppets guide brave punters through manky wee howffs and wide windswept places alike…
