See the Giant Yeti Puppet on the Streets of Brighton!

I just wanted to get in touch to tell you about a Yeti which has been sighted round Brighton during the Fringe Festival.  The Yeti called 'Sid' which is short for 'Siddhi' a Nepalese name which translates as 'Achievement' and what an achievement he is.  Designed by Graham Carter to take part in the largest children's parade in UK and to promote his current show 'Me, Marionette' which will be running from the 4th of May - 3rd of June at Ink-d Gallery in Brighton.  Sid was engineered by puppeteer Emma Fisher director of Beyond the Bark Puppet theatre.  Volunteers have glued, hammered, drilled and painted in their spare time to bring this beast to life!  During May and the beginning of June Sid will be taking to the streets with his team of Yeti trackers (puppeteers) to meet and greet the local people, we are inviting everyone to say hello to him and have their photo taken with him for a chance to win one of 5 Graham Carter Prizes.  People can tag themselves in on Sid the Yeti Facebook page.  
Thanks, Josie! And for those keeping track, I previously blogged about Carter's yetis here and here.

If you get a picture with Sid, don't forget to officially tag yourself, and then send me the pic and I'll feature it here on "I Love the Yeti".

Here are some more images of Sid!
