The Insect CircusThe floating Puppet Theatre Barge invites you to The Insect Circus where grasshoppers, beetles, wasps and dragonflies flit and buzz about, brought to life with puppets, wit and humour. Staged in Little Venice by String Theatre, you'll be immersed in the strange and beautiful world of these small creatures at this 40 minute, wordless show. Expect dramatic lighting and original music, punctuated by the sounds of enraptured children, aged three and above.
