Ancient Egypt arrives in Aden Country Park
Are you studying the Egyptian theme, enjoy puppet theatre, or simply looking for ways to entertain the kids? If so Aden Country Park in Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire is offering a show not to missed. Working in partnership with Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre and North East Arts Touring (NEAT) Aden is offering a rare opportunity to see the marvellous Magic of the Mummy (Tales of Ancient Egypt) puppet theatre performance on Sunday 8th March at 2pm in the Aden Theatre.
The story of how the first ‘Mummy’ was created is an enthralling and bitter family struggle, a story of life, death, love, and jealousy. Find out the history of Osiris, Isis and Set and their role in Ancient Egypt. The story is woven into the fabric of the tomb as the Explorer takes you on a journey crossing the land of Egypt and entering the underworld where you can see Annubis preparing the first Mummy. Meet the God’s Ra and Thor and how they shaped the Ancient World.
Beautiful Rod Puppets, intriguing shadow sequences, and masterful storytelling are the key elements in this show which is for everyone aged 5 upwards. So why not come along, enjoy the 60 minutes performance, along with hearing about ancient Egypt in the fantastic puppetry demonstration after the show.
Tickets are £5 for adults, £4 concession, and £3 for under 16s and are available both online and from the Aden Craft & Gift Shop in Aden Country Park. Children must be accompanied by an adult and due to the limited size of the Aden Theatre we would advise purchasing tickets ahead of performance to avoid disappointment.

Buchan Development Partnership (BDP) and the Friends of Aden Country Park are working in partnership with North East Arts Touring (NEAT), Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre, and Aberdeenshire Council to make this event possible.
