A team of theatre enthusiasts in Scotland have lovingly converted a two-berth caravan into a touring puppet theatre, with performances due to take place in Glenesk this weekend.

Sokobauno Theatre have called their creation The Little Fawn and they hope to take it on a nationwide tour, following on from its premiere at Traquair Fair last month.

Shane Connolly, musician and puppeteer for Sokobauno told the Brechin Advertiser: "This is an exciting new project for us. Over the next few years we hope to take it all over the UK to many hundreds of children and adults."

He added that the conversion project was a labour of love, as they used a vintage 1968 Cheltenham caravan as the starting point.

Caravan lovers in the Brechin area this weekend (September 10th) can catch the caravan puppet theatre performances at regular intervals from 12 noon until 5pm at The Glenesk Retreat.

Agnes Lowden of the retreat's curatorial group is looking forward to the performances as they hark back to the venue's Victorian roots.

"This caravan coming to us now is just like a Victorian showman setting up here, with families coming to see what he has to show [and] we are delighted," she said.

Tickets cost £5 per head and this also includes a free theatre workshop with the performers. The puppet show, 'Weasel in Love' is suitable for all ages.
