The Sultan's Elephant - Giants Descend on London

London has been agog the last few days as a giant girl crash landed her spaceship in the middle of London only to be followed by a Sultan from far-off lands and his magical, time-travelling mechanical elephant. Forty feet high and 42 tonnes in weight!

No I have not consumed vast quantaties of drugs (no honestly!) This theatrical extravaganza by giant puppeteers Royal De Luxe, held London in thrall over the weekend with its story of Giants Elephants and Sultans all played out on the Streets and Squares of Central London. Children and adults alike were enthralled by the giant puppets and the story that enfolded over 4 days and everywhere the giants went, a huge crowd lined the streets to marvel at the spectacle.




Anyone who was lucky enough to see this spectacle was amazed at the artistry and sheer scale. I have never seen an Elephant in Piccadilly let alone a forty foot one and I suspect I never will again! I just hope Royal De Luxe are invited back again for their next spectacle.
