I've just got back from this, and it's absolutely amazing. If you haven't been, make sure you do, as like the spider, this will be something people will be talking about for years, and you don't want to miss out.
The girl and the dog are brilliant, but the sheer scale of the uncle is something to behold, as it towers above you, with feet the size of a small car. It's not just about giant puppets walking around though, it's about the little bits too. From the dog wagging its tail when it gets stroked, to the young girl squatting down and answering the call of nature in the middle of Moorfields (yes, really), so much thought has gone into this.
I know people in certain quarters baulk at the cost in a time of austerity, but seeing literally tens of thousands of people lining the streets, all enjoying our city, shops and restaurants (and no doubt hotels too) full to bursting, it's easy to see why it's money well spent.
Apparently the man from Ismay family didn't like the girl giant having a piss. He thought it was disrespectful. Oh well. She wouldn't have done it if his ancestors hadn't sunk the Titanic. I'm going tomorrow morning. Looking forward to it.
