Brechin charity Angus Arts will be hosting the show ‘The Tallest Horse on Earth’ at Fettercairn Hall on Saturday (November 9).

Calling grown men ‘Silly Boys’ is not something you can often get away with without being insulting but you can when it’s the name if the small, independent theatre which is performing on the night.

‘The Tallest Horse on Earth’ follows the story of a little boy, Tim, who owns the tallest horse on earth... Or so he thinks.

Tim and his horse embark on an adventure, exploring the countryside and meeting lost children and magical creatures on their way.

This results in an epic crusade of the smallest proportions.

Sue Waddicor, administrator of Angus Arts, said: “There’s something very appealing about a company who call themselves ‘Silly Boys’!

“They’re relatively new on the scene but they’re dedicating themselves to producing innovative and exciting theatre of the highest quality, and that’s the sort of show we’re keen to bring to the North East.

“They’re visiting us as part of a nationwide tour with just a few dates in Scotland, so we’re very lucky to be able to host them in Fettercairn.

“It’s a warm-hearted puppet show told with live music, shadow puppetry and a large dollop of giant smashing and should appeal to both children and quirky grown-ups!”

Angus Arts would like to thank NEAT (North East Arts Touring), supported by Creative Scotland, for making this event possible.
