Pop Up Events
From the ancient Crypt in Ripon Cathedral to the back of the Little Ripon Bookshop, there will be puppets, stories and drama popping up in multiple venues across the city. Gav Cross, master storyteller, will be thrilling young audiences in three different venues, students from Upstage Academy will present a half-hour of prize-winning mini dramas and three different puppet shows will be found in venues as varied as the tiny cabman’s’ shelter, The GreenHouse shop and Ripon Cathedral. Local poet Ian Gouge performs his latest long-form poem, Crash and look out for miniature puppets with a soundtrack played through headphones (Beached), a five-minute rolling suitcase puppet show (The Hare and the Moon) and chaotic hand puppets from Hazelsong Theatre.
