These performances have had to be postponed due to one of our puppeteers catching COVID. We are hoping to reschedule the show for some time in the future.

Stel & Wes Fight the Flood is presented by Norwich Puppet Theatre.


Stel (the stoat) and Wes (the weasel) are best friends. It’s 2050 and their natural habitat is looking a little less natural than it should.

When Herb (the hawk) delivers the news that a flood is on the way, there isn’t enough time to avoid disaster and  Stel and Wes get separated as the waters rise. The only way they can stay together is by travelling back in time to stop the flood from happening. Join them both on an adventure that sees them trying everything they can to fight the flood.   

Expect dynamic puppetry, opportunities to interact with our story and some seriously catchy music.
