The Hamwehads – Free
The Kat’s Whiskers

Delightfully silly in places, ‘The Hamwehads’ is a wacky, if somewhat slapdash hour of puppetry, storytelling, and catchy jingles. The three performers are versatile and charismatic; the young crowd warm to them quickly, and are whole-heartedly willing to participate and shout encouragement, including the rousing pantomime favourite “he’s behind you!” on numerous occasions. Noisy, pacey, and a bit chaotic, the story of Asa and Lola’s quest to get home rattles along swiftly, meaning children don’t get bored and restless; it’s pleasing to see such an effortless connection being made with kids. Lovely furry puppets, a wickedly funny moment involving silly string, and some old-fashioned toilet humour make this a wonderfully daft performance.
