Where does Aura come from?


Aura is a 5 metre high puppet created by Yorkshire based Animated Objects Theatre Company who is visiting Crawley in August as part of her odyssey in the UK. Crawley will welcome her with open arms, sharing stories, music, dance and art with her as she travels around the town from 11 – 14 August 2022 as part of the Enliven: You’re Welcome season funded by Crawley Town Centre BID, Arts Council England and Crawley Borough Council.

We are celebrating the welcoming and diverse nature of Crawley and it’s residents and the 75th anniversary of the new town with this art project.
