The Boo

The Boo in Waterfoot is alternative venue and a place of expression, a hub for creative works.

It is the home of the Horse and Bamboo theatre company, presenting visually captivating experiences for all those who come to visit, often developing different forms of puppetry within performances.

From starting their journey in Rossendale 35 years ago, they continue to work in many of the same ways, with puppets, masks, music and storytelling always remaining at the core of each of the shows.

Adapting with the times The Boo, incorporating animation and film into their quirky and creative shows.

The venue provides a large space for every event, from the company itself or visiting artists, whether that be theatre shows or art events.

As a family-friendly space they provide a safe environment for cultural expression, but also a place to meet and share with the community of Rossendale.
