On 14th August 2021 to 15th August 2021
A giant puppet in the form of a dragon will appear in Plymouth and roam through the city, exploring its new surroundings and interacting with the public. The Hatchling, which stands at over 6.5m tall, is the largest-ever puppet to be solely human-operated.
Upon hatching the dragon will explore her environment, stopping traffic as her curiosity takes her through the city and she meets members of the public.
At sunset on Sunday 15 August, she will undertake a miraculous metamorphosis into a kite, unfolding her wings spanning over 20m. Flying from a clifftop, she will soar into the sky and across the sea in a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle for a live audience.
