The Houndshill Centre – which is a shopping centre in the middle of Blackpool recently revamped and relaunched with a parade with predictably enough a seaside theme. As Artistic Director of the Highly successful Puppet Up! series of festivals in Blackpool town centre since 1997, Rachel was asked to throw together in a very short time an impressive community parade. Naturally Rachel rose to the challenge and quickly found community groups around Blackpool that were totally up for it. Big up to GRUMPY play resource unit for their support and help of Sarah Hicks and Boz Phillips for their sterling support.
To celebrate the success of this project we’ve put a new page on our extensive and soon to be updated DNA site called Giant Puppets which is all about the larger scale end of our project work.
