The Bear

From the book by Raymond Briggs

Adapted by Pins and Needles

Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear's lap? Or ride on its back? Have you ever tried to give a polar bear a bath, or clear up its poo?
One night when she's fast asleep, Tilly is visited by an enormous bear. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly's not scared.

The story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart-warming tale is one of imagination and growing up.

Featuring inventive design, original music, and magical puppetry.

'Move over War Horse, this polar puppet is magic' The Guardian

Sarah Dalton - A Sense of Place

Sarah's landscape paintings meander across gently undulating surfaces such as fired white earthenware ceramic.

They are often inspired by the wild North Pennines where she lives, as well as by her years in China. They aim to capture something of the atmosphere and power of the fleeting moment.
