FREE (no need to book)



FREE - no need to book! “One for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl and four for a boy, five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never to be told.....” Encounter two giant magpie puppets as they stalk the streets in their rickety, ramshackle nests, in search of your darkest secrets.

Inspired by the ancient magpie rhyme, these spellbinding puppets combine fairy tale beauty with an enchanting interactive element. Join their magical journey as they meander and roam. With a flourish of their feathered pens, you are invited to share your own secrets on aged paper, then post into the boxes faithfully carried in their silvered beaks. 

Will you trust your secrets to their promised safe keeping, or risk them being stolen away to the ends of time? Step into a curious world of magic and make believe, and maybe post a secret or two…..
