Puppets with Guts



“I am Gnomus Enormis. Gnomus to those who take time to know me. A giant gnome. The giant gnome. Ahhhyesss… the last survivor of my species.
This is just a short visit I’m making, up here, to your Green World. In the dark caverns and pathways, deep beneath the ground. That’s my home. I’m a caretaker of the earth. Tickling tree roots, cradling seeds, keeping watch on the saplings, as they spring forth into your world above...”

Come and meet Gnomus who will be checking every leaf and every flower on Watford High Street to inspire a new generation of conservationists.

Gnomus, the caretaker of plants and stories, unearths untold facts about climate change and the environment, engaging families in themes of extinction and conservation. This bumbling, gentle giant is kind, friendly and
perfect for adults of all ages and families with children 6+.
