Great theatre with excellent view of stage from upper stalls (row L, seats 39 & 40). Good acoustics too. A great story told by excellent actors - and brilliant puppeteers. You forget that Joey and other horses - and the duck, crows etc - are being "operated" and they soon become "real". Take tissues.

Everyone knows how brilliant this is! It is so clever the way the puppet horses seem real from the way the actors move them. We have horses at home and they really are just like this!

Amazing movement of the horse puppet. But a very sad storyline. My daughter is an equestrian and she closed her eyes at many scenes and definitely cried. Emotional show but well performed.

The whole experience was magnificent and the views from the seats superb. The animation was not what I had expected and proved to be totally realistic. Well worth a visit.
