Smaller theatre compared to others which added to the fantastic atmosphere. The horses and goose come alive on stage. Laughing one moment ,tears rolling down your face the next. Cast amazing , would certainly recommend this show.

“An Extraordinary Piece of Theatre”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is an amazing piece of theatre. It's like nothing else I've ever seen. The movements of the horses is absolutely life-like. The walk, the trot, the movement of the head - everything. Its a must see if your in London.

“Marvelous piece of theatre”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

You are soon drawn into the theatre, you forget you are actually watching a puppet horse! Bit dark in places but it all adds to the story.

“The most fantastic staging”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Emotional and moving. The puppetry is completely believable, just amazingly talented handling. The acting is also superb. Don't miss this unique performance.

“What a show!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Simply sensational! We went without watching the film and then watched the film afterwards. The horses look real! Great story and the theatre is ideal for pre and post show drinks!
