The Castle Builder

By Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet


Kid Carpet and Vic Llewellyn take you on a musical, magical, moving & highly comic journey through the minds of some of our planet’s most eccentric and creative individuals. A smash-hit success at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

The show spirals outwards from personal accounts into tales of outsider artists who’ve been inspired to build gigantic extraordinary structures, alone, in secret, and without artistic validation from the real world. It’s a mad world where anything can happen!
