Come and meet Bagpuss, see the Soup Dragon and behold Noggin the Nog. Oliver Postgate's voice and Peter Firmin's puppets shaped the childhood memories of millions since they started collaborating in the 1950s. As well as telling the story of Bagpuss and the Clangers, the exhibition will go behind the scenes of some of their other creations: Pogles Wood, Noggin the Nog and Ivor the the Engine.
Enter the world of Smallfilms to discover original puppets, sets, and filming equipment. See how characters developed, and learn how Oliver and Peter developed their stop-frame animation techniques. Have a go yourself using 21st century technology.
