Nostalgia on the way as Bosco comes to Offaly
Children of the 80s and 90s will be in for some serious nostalgia as Bosco comes to Offaly nearly forty years after the beloved puppet hit our TV screens in 1979.
Bosco will be part of a Lambert Puppet Theatre production of Hansel and Gretel, making a appearance at the start of the show in Birr Theatre.
The Lambert Puppet Theatre is widely recognised as the premier touring puppet theatre company in Ireland, the UK and Europe.
From its earliest beginning the Lambert family has been involved with RTE TV, working the hugely popular series Wanderly Wagon.
Paula Lambert was the voice of Bosco on TV for seventeen years and indeed Bosco is still a firm favourite with the younger children and big kids alike.
This is a beautifully produced show with large puppets and colourful sets and is suitable for an age group up to ten years of age.
The show begins at 2pm on January 28 and tickets are priced at €11 (or 4 tickets €39).
