  • 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.
  • Absolutely stunning play of Shadows. The artist has the knack of weaving a story around many Shadow puppets. Recommend experiencing this show of 45 minutes to all ages. The setting is unique- aboard a boat converter into. Puppet theatre. Kids were laughing their heads off. Kept the audience engaged.
  • Pretty Lovely place, quite small with an interesting stage where to bring children for a puppet shows.
  • This is a truly magical place! Very quirky, very unique in the most positive sense of the word. The most lovely people in the booking and in the cafe. We will definitely return and recommend to our friends and family.
