    Have just been to see the famous French marionette company Royal de Luxe with one of there 30 ft high puppets in Liverpool. What a fantastic sight this was. Its all part of the Liverpool Sea Odyssey and anyone in the area should definately try to catch the 50 ft uncle tonight. Am sorry you will have to Google it as I don't do links. Am sorry about the quality of photos as they were taken on my phone.

    Have never seen anything so impressive. If you Youtube "Royal de Luxe" you will understand what I mean.
    The Liverpool Sea Odyssey is an amazing thing.

    I would hope so the way they have been hyping it up for weeks on BBC NW.

    But they don't half cheat, just as with the spider, then promo shows a 150 foot high girl, they deliver 30, or so you say. Look at your pictures, she is three people high, less than 20 feet in fact.

    Still an amazing sight Brian. My advice is. If your in the area go and see for yourself. As someone who is interested in mechanics and how things work this is not to be missed.
    Oh I would say the girl is defiantly big but didn't have my tape measure with me to measure the exact height.
