Giant puppets will feature in Doncaster outdoor show, Rise

Town centre venue Cast is presenting a free outdoor spectacular for the fifth year in a row.

Rise will see giant puppets walk through the streets of Doncaster on September 13 before ending in front of Cast for a finale of giant proportions.

The story will celebrate Doncaster people who have changed the lives of others for the better.

Cast is set to welcome pop-up theatre, Roundabout, to the Market Square from September 19-22. In partnership with theatre company Paines Plough, Roundabout will bring new plays, comedy, music and community events to the town centre.
