Truly by dumb luck we saw this show on the 100th Anniversary of WW1 - simply SPECTACULAR show. Good for children as young as 12 I'd say. Energy of the puppeteers makes the show.

This show was incredibly well produced! The motions and body language of the horses was extremely realistic! After a short while you forgot about the people making the horses go! The staging was simple but creative and effective. I sternly recommend seeing this show!
Be forewarned that there are a lot of stairs to get to your seats.

One of the cleverest pieces of stage craft you will ever see. The story is lovely and absorbing, they recreate the war scenes very well, but the utter magic is the horses... you literally can't take your eyes of them!

This live show is a must see for visitors to London, although they are also touring it seems. A packed house - had been a bit concerned that our seats in the second row (in the orchestra pit really) may not have been a good location, but not so. We probably saw and heard parts that others further back may have missed. Given that it is 100 years since the beginning of WWI this is a very poignant show.
There are not sufficient superlatives to compliment the actors, musicians and puppeteers (if that's the right term).
