An extraordinary, beautiful and funny walkabout puppet act from the Flying Buttresses that draws in crowds wherever it goes.

This is one of the best loved acts around, delighting audiences around the world with its witty improvisation, charming characterisations, and utterly captivating effect.

‘Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for recommending The Flying Buttresses for Mini-Fest yesterday. They were a huge hit and at one point I thought the children would never let them leave! We would love to have them around our office just to cheer us up! Thanks once again and we hope they enjoyed the performances.’

— Emma Cookson, Richmond Council

'...I thought you were BRILLIANT! I hope you are enjoying your expedition, and I hope you have managed to stretch your budget of two mounds of earth and a carrot. My mummy said you were enchanting, and made her feel like she was in the film Labyrinth, which she loves. It was lovely to meet you both and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.’

— Martin Kieran, aged three and three quarters
