CAPTAIN BLUE HASN'T A CLUE • THE GOLDEN HINDE

It was not puppet show. Rather a movie. The ‘movie’ lasted only for 15 min. It doesn’t worse £5/person.

The Golden Hinde responded:

Dear Erika, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We will consider your feedback when we are working on our future puppet shows. Kind regards, The Golden Hinde

CAPTAIN BLUE HASN'T A CLUE • THE GOLDEN HINDE

The puppet show was interesting. I do think the show wasn't age appropriate - the children (aged 2-5) were scared of the pirate and dragon.

It was raining so very wet inside, plus steep staircases - not user friendly with young children. Would have struggled with a 1 year old

The Golden Hinde responded:

Dear Diana, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We will consider the age recommendation more carefully for our future events. Kind regards, The Golden Hinde

STORYTELLING WEEKEND • THE GOLDEN HINDE

Golden hind was fantastic. It’s a ship so obviously there are obstacles and I don’t think there were toilet facilities but it was great and the staff we fantastic.

HALF TERM: YOUNG DRAKE & THE WINDS OF FATE • THE GOLDEN HINDE

we've had a lovely time, came on a weekday during half term and the place wasn't packed. The puppet show was beautiful, and was connected to the theame of exploration and explorer Francis Staff was super nice, funny and helpful. site isn't very safe, lots of hooks and narrow paths, tread carefully.
