About Puppet Animation Festival: Gingerbread Man - CANCELLED

Imagine a world made entirely of biscuits: trees, houses and stars in the sky. Into this beautiful world comes a Gingerbread Man, creating havoc wherever he goes. He meets a majestic cow, a stubborn goat and an opportunistic bird. But... can the Gingerbread Man outwit the dastardly Fox?

With a foot-tapping Yummy Chase soundtrack reminiscent of an old movie – and minimal language, this is a tremendously popular story with younger audiences. A visual feast designed for young children and their families.

Established in 1987, Clydebuilt is one of Scotland’s leading touring puppet companies, touring extensively throughout the UK and annually performing over 200 shows. For the past twenty years Clydebuilt has presented its productions at the Puppet Animation Festival.
