Gnomus BBC Proms

A giant arena and engagement big puppet



Gnomus is a giant arena and engagement puppet commissioned for the BBC Ten Pieces Prom 2017. Taking inspiration from Mussorgsky’s Picture at an Exhibition and British Folklore, Gnomus was developed in collaboration between Nick Barnes Puppets and Ivan Thorley through a short engagement process with year 6 students at FOX Primary School in London.

The puppet is 4m high and available for walkabout and education workshops.
