Biggleton

August – September 2017
Designer: Emma Dibb
Location: Manchester

Biggleton is a new show for CBeebies. It takes place in a town made of cardboard where a young cast can pretend to be grown ups and play at community life. We created flats, painted the floor, and engineered some tricky roof placements to help bring this pretend world into reality. Rather than being scenic painted, it was clad with foamex printed panels, which presented a new challenge as it is the first time we have made such a large set in this manner. Foamex is quite brittle so we had to take extra care when transporting the finished set. But we think the end result is just fantastic!
