This’ll probably mean NOTHING to a lot of my followers, but I wanted to share it anyway~
We went to Brighton for my friends Hen weekend last month, and on one of the afternoons, Jenn and I wandered along the seafront shops on our way back to the hotel… when we saw this little store with ADORABLE muppet-style puppets in it. We went over to take a look (Jenn ended up buying two) and the guy who made them came and had a chat with us. Turns out he’d only been open for four days, and he said we ‘made his day’ with our reactions and comments.
As we got talking, he revealed himself to be Andy Heath, aka the head puppeteer from the TV show MONGRELS, and also was the one to create the original Nelson puppet (shown in picture) from the pilot, where Nelson was much more like Vince, before they toned him down into a metrosexual intellect.
SO! Not only did we get to meet Mr. Heath unexpectedly, we now also own two puppets made by him!
Needless to say, this really made our weekend.
SO! If anyone is down Brighton way, take a wander along the seafront and keep an eye out for this store! If you’re facing the ocean, it’s along the stretch to the right of the pier~
