  • A great surprise, all fitted into the neat space of an old river barge. We saw the shadow puppet show which had the kids captivated and amused throughout. Very clever work with pianist like fingers by the performer using hands, arms, shoulders and head to produce an incredible array of lifelike shadows.
  • Is this the most charming place in London? Everything about this theatre seems to have been crafted with love. A truly magical experience.
