The Adventures of Bodil the Brave

Commissioned by the 2016 Rochester Sweeps Festival 'The Adventures of Bodil The Brave' told of a little girl's quest to save her mother and sister from the grasps of a great snake, with some help from the wandering heroine Stour.


Inspired by Kent folklore 'The Adventures of Bodil the Brave' incorporated new music, puppetry and lots of audience participation, particularly aimed at ages 3-9 years. Through the fun and adventure of Bodil audiences learnt about local folklore, history and strong heroines, all set against the beautiful backdrop of Rochester castle.​
