Ever wondered where all that  glitter and tinsel for Christmas comes from? Meet The Glitter Miners - two dazzling diggers following a seam of tinsel and glitter that comes  to the surface near Claire’s Accessories.  With dirt-strewn faces and glitter everywhere from their beards to their mining boots, these shining sons of toil will add extra sparkle (literally) to any festive event.

With the trademark hilarity and lightning-fast improvisation we have come to expect from Stickleback Plasticus, this performance has all the glitter and nonsense of Christmas,  but with heart.  Comes either as a two-miner walkabout, or  as an installation complete with glittering workman’s tent.


Ask us a question, we'd love to chat!
