I’m sure that most of you will be familiar with Cabaret Mechanical Theatre. I first came across them several years ago when they had a shop and exhibition in Covent Garden, London. They’ve moved on now but are as strong as ever with a fabulous touring display of automata from a whole range of automata artists.
I was lucky enough to be invited to their new show in Tullie House in the nearby city of Carlisle.
If you get the chance, make sure you go, it is a fantastic display mixing the Cabaret exhibition with exhibits from the Netherlands Science Museum, Museum Boerhaave.
The exhibition runs until
1st of June.
