Puppetry, choir singing and Alex Higgins round of Kingston Festival of Stories

First published in News

Puppets, singing and snooker will feature on the final day of Kingston Connection’s Festival of Stories at the Rose Theatre next weekend.

The end of this year’s festival begins with the Big Sing, where everyone attending will learn two songs during the open rehearsal.

Those wanting to continue the fun can follow the choir to the market place for a two hour performance, followed by a musical flashmob and then a grand finale.

If the Big Sing isn’t your thing, then join puppetry company Smoking Apples and students of the Kingston Gujarati School to see Traditional Tales come to life.

Delivered by Globhal Arts Kingston, Traditional Tales utilises theatre and puppetry, with Smoking Apples and the students telling traditional tales from Gujarat.

To cap off the evening, those over 16 can attend a performance of The People’s Champion, which tells the story of triumph and failure faced by snooker legend Alex ‘The Hurricane’ Higgins.
