Presented By Puppets with Guts

The Lips

Part of Greenwich Fair and On Your Doorstep: Thamesmead

29 & 30 August

What to Expect: Great for Kids


The Lips are a chorus of delightfully deviant divas whose mouths have broken free from their bodies! A luminous outdoor big puppet singalong show with something to say, The Lips reanimate our favourite songs, celebrate our shared love of popular music and uphold our freedom to speak out through a luminous pop puppetry lip sync performance. 

Sorry, this event has already happened!
