Flotsam and Jetsom wash up in East Riding Libraries at Willerby, Haltemprice, and North Bridlington in March

Tue, 21 Feb 2023

Three East Riding Libraries will be hosting Flotsam and Jetsom from Lempen Puppet Theatre in March.

The events, at Willerby Library, Haltemprice Library and Customer Service Centre and at North Bridlington Library, will star Flotsam, who is soft, flexible, and laid back. She slides and glides through life on the ice. Jetsam is the opposite; his insectile body is stiff and nervy, alert and watchful, suspicious of all in his forest home.

And then comes the weather... and they are both cast adrift in a world that is strange to them and full of a range of dangers. Finally washed up on the same island beach, they must discover the other and work out how they can work together.

The shows are a hopeful adventure story about two very different creatures displaced from their respective worlds by climate change. They are described as a story of our time, visual, accessible and with delightful puppetry and original music, and are suitable for everyone from 4 - 104!

Tickets must be booked in advance, and cost: Adult £6, Children £3.
