The Fisherman and the Pearl.

A charming and environmentally friendly show for youngsters is coming to south east Northumberland.

The Fisherman and the Pearl is a puppet show that is perfect for young people aged five and up.

Skipton based, Lempen Puppet Theatre bring this fun, entertaining and environmentally friendly children’s story to Seaton Delaval Arts Centre on Friday, May 1, at 5pm.

McManus, an old fisherman from Fisherman’s Cove has seen it all.

When he was young the fishing was good and the sea teaming with life. Now he’s old, sad and grumpy and spends his days sitting on the rocks lamenting the good old days. But his granddaughter Jo has found something at the beach – a special pearl – and all may not be lost.

This is the story of a fisherman’s love, and a precious gift that gives him knowledge of the creatures below the waves.

A comic, tragic, yet hopeful telling of a story that affects us all.

The Fisherman and the Pearl was created in partnership with The Marine Conservation Society and features puppetry, mask, storytelling and animation.

The Fisherman and the Pearl will be at Seaton Delaval Arts Centre on Blyth Street, at 5pm on Friday, May 1.

Tickets priced at £7 for adults, £5 for children or £20 for a family ticket are available by calling the booking line on (01910) 237 5460.
