Up Jumped the Crab is presented by Crooked Timber Theatre

A charming puppet story in miniature showing a day at sea with the Cromer crab fishermen of North Norfolk. Set to the music of Bob Roberts, Tony Hall and Percy Brown with puppets by Gemma Khawaja.

The show is approximately 25 minutes long and will be followed by a drop-in style workshop where all audience members can get crafty with a making activity. In this workshop, participants can make their own bottle top crabs, as well as joining in with some other activities. Participants will have a total of 1h 30m in the space to watch the show, make some puppets and have a picnic if they want to.
