The Giants

This giant marionette is the creation of French theatre company Royal de Luxe.

The Shipwrecked Giant walked along the promenade at New Brighton in England, amongst a whole cast of giant puppets.

He was taking part in a performance called "Liverpool's Dream", on October 5th 2018, which was the final performance of these gentle giants, as they have since been retired after 20 years of performing around the world.
