Watch the BIG MAN webstream live

Vision Mechanics are to walk Scotland's first giant puppet around the UK.
Big Man Walking, is a spectacular street event. He's an 8 metre high giant man that will walk through the towns and villages of Scotland.

He will be an awesome sight as he walks through our streets, watching and filming you and your performances and offerings, shakes your hand, waves to the crowds or blinks his big eyes in your direction.

This project is supported by The National Lottery through the Scottish Arts Council's Inspire Fund.
