One of the highlights of our summer here in London was the visit by the magical French street theatre company Royal De Luxe and their street spectacle The Sultan’s Elephant. It was an extraordinary experience and just looking at the images again still sends shivers down my spine.
The enormous mechanical elephant walked through the streets of London, (traffic lights and street furniture had been removed just so that it could get around) accompanied by the time travelling little girl, who arrived in a rocket early one morning.
If you can make it to the Jours de Fete in Calais 28th Sept – 1st Oct, France you can re-live the experience. Thoroughly recommended.
