On Friday 24 June, from 4pm Little Amal, the 3.5m tall puppet child is coming to Bristol as part of her walk across the UK – and you’re invited to welcome her and walk with her around our city!
Join Little Amal outside Bristol Old Vic on King Street where her journey begins with music, singing and poetry before she sets off on the streets of Bristol, meeting thousands of people along the way.
If you’d like to make your own bird puppet to fly alongside Amal as she walks, you can find the ‘How To’ video and full details here:
