Electric Eels

Launched at Plymouth City Centre and the Barbican Christmas light switch on in 2022, our sparky trio of eels electrified everyone they met.
These sound reactive puppets are operated by their own performer, allowing children and adults to have a personal interaction with the eels. We also include a greeter to help encourage these moments for those slightly who could be unsure of these 3 foot creatures!
Your booking could include one, two or three eels, depending on the size of your audience and your budget, with each performance lasting 2 hours. Prices start from:
1 eel | £435
2 eels | £625
3 eels | £815
Prices exclude VAT and travel costs.
