Aden welcomes Puppet Animation Festival
For the first time ever Aden Country Park in Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire welcomes the hugely successful annual Puppet Animation Festival. The festival runs from 28th March to 18th April with the first Aden performance to be held on the opening day, Saturday 28th March, at 2pm, with a programme of funny, delightful “Short Animated Films” especially for children and their families.
The Short Animated Films event offers an eclectic mix of beautiful visual styles and intriguing animation techniques and among many vivid and exciting worlds experience some musical seals singing for their supper, a delicate friendship between a rabbit and a deer, a cat and dog who fight in a very unusual way, and a workaholic whose dream holiday is interrupted by some very ancient animals!
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.
Festival activities continue in Aden Country Park on Sunday 5th April at 2pm, where an audience is invited to “Twitawoo” a brand new puppet animation show from Puppet Lab, which brings to life Owl, Badger, Squirrel, Pine Marten and friends who all live in the fabulous Scottish woodlands. Funny and mischievous, the forest friends share their adventures and invite you to help them look after their home.
Twitawoo tickets are £7 for adults, £6 concession, £6 for Under 16s, and £24 for Family tickets (admits 4, max 2 adults) and are also available both online and from the Aden Craft & Gift Shop in Aden Country Park.
Both events are aimed at children and families where children must be accompanied by an adult. Due to the limited size of the Aden Theatre we would also advise purchasing tickets ahead of performance to avoid disappointment.
For further details about each event or ticket information please visit Animated Short Films or Twitawoo event page.
Buchan Development Partnership (BDP) and the Friends of Aden Country Park are working in partnership with North East Arts Touring (NEAT), the Puppet Animation Festival, and Aberdeenshire Council to make this event possible.
