Don’t miss the Magical Lempen Puppet Theatre show

Families can enjoy a fabulous show at the Chapel Gallery in Ormskirk in the run up to Christmas.

The legendary Lempen Puppet Theatre perform ‘The am-A-zing Thing’ on Saturday 17 December.

This is an imaginative journey through some well-known Grimm stories with puppets, acting and live music. It’s great family entertainment, and families are welcome to curl up on the gallery rugs, beanbags or chairs and experience a magical performance.

Shows are at 11am and 2.30pm and last for 55 minutes. Tickets are £4 each or £15 for a family ticket (2 Adults & 2 Children or 1 Adult & 3 Children). The show is suitable for children aged 5 and over.

Places are limited, so please contact the Gallery to book on 01695 571328 or chapel.gallery@westlancs.gov.uk.

Councillor Yvonne Gagen, portfolio holder for Leisure, said: “This sounds like a fantastic family show, so make sure you don’t miss it.”
