War Horse puppets and puppeteers

Inside the Horse with Puppetry Assistant Jimmy Grimes

Find out how this spectacular and ingenious show was developed - from original concept, through workshops, to first performances, and then to productions around the world.

Assistant Puppetry Director Jimmy Grimes shows us how the horses work, and gives us a look inside professional puppeteering for a hit show.
