The Lost Colour @ Charlton House

A colourful world of puppetry and comedy all on top of a van!


Join Malcolm Brushell, a professional painter and amateur alchemist, on his quest to find the pinky-est pink paint on the planet! Through cracking rocks, mashing every conceivable vegetable, and even bottling and fermenting his own cow’s wee, he has created every colour imaginable...except for that rascally illusive pink, but he won't give up!

Half a String create, explore, and share spectacular worlds to get lost in. Through high-quality live performance, powerful original stories are told that across generations to create shared meaningful experiences. Design is at the forefront of everything we do, with miraculous transforming sets bringing a collective wonder of discovery.

A colourful explosion of puppetry, music and comedy, join the race to create the most pigmented pink paint ever patented!


There will also be performances and workshops with the Bubble Man throughout the day at Charlton House - why not bring a picnic and relax in the gorgeous grounds of this beautiful historic gem!


To reserve your space please book a free ticket.

This event is part of Greenwich Family Arts Festival, a month-long programme of free arts activities, theatre, workshops and more taking place all across the borough of Greenwich. Events are grouped across a weekend in different locations so you can attend multiple events each day and really get those festival vibes (we all know it's been a long time!)
