Introducing : The Summer of Sol

Hello and welcome!

We’re happy to announce that Flutterby Theatre are performing their latest story at Bath’s Comic and Sci-Fi Weekender on Saturday the 28th September – The Summer of Sol.

The tale is our first exclusive shadow puppetry piece, and we’re really excited to show it to you!

A little excerpt…

‘Welcome to BA1, the year is 3983, the 40th century. Our tale is set in a region that has had many names over the Millenia. In the 21st century – the electronic era – it was known as Bath. Before even then, in the 1st century, it was known as Aqua Suils, at the height of the Roman empire. Today, BA1 is a popular residence for the elderly…’

The show revolves around the Forces Of The Solar System – you may have heard of them before in the form of the Old Roman Gods or the Planets. The story is about an evil force Nox, who wants to destroy the sun. Old members of The Forces: Jupiter, Neptune and Mercury, with the help of a human called Summer, go on a journey to seek out the force of the sun, Sol, bring Nox to justice and save the world!


Join us on Saturday the 28th of September to see the show at 2.15pm, and perhaps even partake in our superhero puppet making workshops (3.15pm on both the Saturday and the Sunday). The Bath Comic and Sci-Fi Weekender event is taking place at the Masonic Building on Old Orchard Street in Bath.

Take a peek at their website for more info, and to get a ticket!
