Magnifical and fantasticulous

Children undergoing rehabilitation at The Children's Trust were astounded and amazed by an enormous exotic caravan packed with puppets, dance, music and magic, and professional charlatans regaling tales of wit, virtue and courage. The performance was delivered by Les Enfants Terribles theatre group founded by Artistic Director and actor, Oliver Lansley, a supporter of the charity which supports children with brain injury across the UK. He commented: "It was fantastic to do something that the children enjoyed so much. Thankfully the rain held off, and there were lots of smiles and laughter. The Children's Trust is a truly fantastic place that despite the reason for its existence, keeps the spirit of a magical and loving childhood. We are delighted to be able to be a part of that." Hazel Thompson, play and activities coordinator at The Children's Trust said:
"It was a brilliant day, and The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie was the highlight. The children watched the show with pure amazement. We also had plate spinning, a horse and cart, and giggle doctors." Later this year the company will also do a special one off performance, based on their London show Adventures in Wonderland, which is also helping to raise funds for the charity. The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie will be playing at the Edinburgh Fringe throughout August at The Pleasance Courtyard.
