A lion at Maidstone Museum? Sounds legit...

If you're looking for something a little different to do in Maidstone, you may well find a visit to Maidstone Museum on Saturday, January 23 offers a day out that guarantees entertainment. As part of the museum's Magic of Masks and Puppets exhibition - which runs until February 20 - a special appearance by Aslan from 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' will can be enjoyed.

Of course, it's not going to be a real lion - or even Liam Neeson, for that matter - but instead a magnificent puppet version that first appeared in the Hazlitt Theatre's production back in 2013. Crafted by the team behind the ever-popular War Horse production, the life-sized lion puppet will be operated by performers from the Hazlitt Youth Theatre from 11am until 12.30pm, and will provide a fascinating insight into the dexterity and skill required of puppeteers in modern theatre productions.

Aslan at Maidstone Museum

Speaking about the event, Maidstone Museum's Interpretation and Exhibitions Manager Lyn Palmer said: "We’re delighted to be able to bring this magnificent version of Aslan to Maidstone Museum. To be able to have the Hazlitt Youth Theatre perform with the model perfectly complements the current Magic of Masks and Puppets exhibition on show at the museum, and represents a wonderful display of modern puppetry in the world of theatre.

"We’ve had a great reception for the Magic of Masks and Puppets exhibition at the museum, so welcoming Aslan represents an added bonus for visitors on the Saturday. The history of puppetry has provided a fascinating education for everyone fortunate enough to see the display and, with this live demonstration, it promises to be equally as fun and entertaining."

Entry to the demonstration of Aslan begins at 11am on January 23, so make sure you're up and about early to avoid missing out.
