It was a wondersome array of creations, many sensor-operated, coming alive as you passed among them.  Giant marionettes jostled with life-size creatures and automata - all old familiar Forkbeard friends from across the decades. There were mechanized peep shows, strings to pull, animations, films and the great array of equipment from FF’s analogue roots in cine and sound through to digital, all still working and whirring away; things you could wear, as well as twice daily inflations of the famous Blue Woman from 1985.

After four decades of large-scale exhibitions across the UK and Abroad, Forkbeard finally concentrated everything into one huge working display at their Waterslade Studios in Devon called The MUSEUM of FORKBEARD. We kept this going for about four years but now, unfortunately, we have closed its doors for good.
