Zippy and Me: An Evening with Ronnie le Drew

Zippy and Me: An Evening with Ronnie le Drew

Over the course of almost half a century, puppeteer Ronnie Le Drew has worked with the greats - from David Bowie in Labyrinth to Michael Caine in A Muppet Christmas Carol. But the role that really defined his career was Zippy in Rainbow, a puppet which he operated for more than two decades.

Celebrating the release of his new book Zippy and Me, join Ronnie for a very special talk about his life and work, from behind-the-scenes gossip from the set of Rainbow to overcoming the prejudices of his parents who didn’t think ‘dolly-waggling’ was a viable career.

The evening will include cameos from some of the most important puppet characters of Ronnie’s career, clips from the shows and an opportunity to ask questions and to have books signed.

Recommended for ages 12+
