Joey, The Equine Star of War Horse, Takes Part In Chinese New Year Celebrations In Trafalgar Square

War Horse is the powerful story of a young boy called Albert and his beloved horse, Joey, who has been requisitioned to fight for the British in World War I. Caught in enemy crossfire, Joey ends up serving on both sides during the war before landing in No Man’s Land, while Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home.  A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, the stage production of War Horse features ground-breaking puppetry work by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, which brings breathing and galloping horses to life on stage.

The puppeteers are: Matthew Forbes (Joey Head), Tom Wilton (Joey Heart) and Michael Brett (Joey Hind).  They will be joined by Jack Holden as Albert.
