Welcome to Flounder Rock Lighthouse, where three men live and work, battling the elements and the long lonely night watches, with only each other and the seagulls for company.

It’s Young ‘Arry’s first day as a lighthouse keeper, and he’s pretty excited. He’s dreamt of a life full of adventure and heroic deeds- so long as he can bring his teddy. Wise Principal Keeper Old Tom and uptight Assistant Keeper Dick are there to teach ‘Arry the ropes, but he’s pretty hopeless. They show him that life on the lighthouse isn’t about adventure; it’s about polishing brass, mopping floors and drinking tea. Most of the time, anyway. When the storm of the century threatens Flounder Rock, will the lamp shine true? Will disaster strike? Will they run out of biscuits?

WinterWalker presents Three Keepers, a funny and physical show for children and families. Three Keepers is a coming-of-age story for the whole family performed completely without words, using a fast and funny blend of physical theatre, original music, inventive dance and slapstick comedy.
