Having lived by themselves for hundreds of years, blissfully unaware of the changing world around them, this pint-sized pair have ventured out in search of fame, fortune and friendship, touring the world with their possessions strapped to their backs.

Here’s what The Flying Buttresses – Walkabout Puppet Characters’ clients said:

“Hugely popular! Hodman Dodmanott and Sally Forth have attracted a lot of fan following amongst the children”

Khaleej Times

“From the moment we saw you at the Showcase, we knew we had to have you at Darlington… Brilliant!”

Darlington Borough Council

“The Flying Buttresses were hilarious, their steward was in hysterics all around the market place as was their audience. At points they had so many people round them, it was difficult for them to get to the end of the street.”

Inside Out Theatre Events

“Hodman and Sally were adorable! I am surprised you made it back together, so many people wanted to take you home!”

Manchester International Arts

“I was stunned… so original… the children and adults believed it entirely!”

Thameside Metropolitan Council

“The Flying Buttresses were absolutely fantastic, I didn’t get to spend huge amounts of time with them unfortunately as I was full on elsewhere but whenever I did peek out over the square the crowd certainly seemed to love them! I didn’t envy them in their costumes in that heat either! Rupert and Danielle were both lovely and professional, wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again. Please do pass on my thanks as I didn’t get to thank them personally and say goodbye on the day.”

The Flying Buttresses – Walkabout Puppet Characters’s Technical Requirements:

The Flying Buttresses never perform without a steward who is responsible for their security and also assists in opening doors and getting access to lifts and dressing rooms.
This is usually someone provided by the client. If the client is unable to get someone, they can supply their own.

Secure, well lit, dressing room with access to mains electricity power socket. Ground floor dressing rooms are nice but not essential.

Refreshments are always appreciated – particularly water on hot days.
