Thu 28 May - Mon 31 Aug 8pm
York puppeteer, performer and producer Freddie Hayes is set to release her short comedy film, Fred & Sharon via Facebook on May 29th at 8pm to cheer up the city in lockdown.
The ten-minute film features two unhappily married puppets, Fred and Sharon, owners of a dated York boozer. With a shift in British drinking culture, the business is now in jeopardy and "Fred must venture into the dangerous world of 'The Hipster' to save the pub," says the puppeteer. But will there be strings attached?
For the film, the puppets found themselves at diverse locations around the city, from Spark: York to Young Thugs Studios, True Story cafe to Coney Street. "If you're missing the pub during quarantine, tune into my puppet comedy on May 29th at 8pm," says Freddie.
Tune in Friday 29th May at 8pm for the Facebook LIVE watch party!
