Joey, the star of the National Theatre’s smash-hit production of War Horse, trotted into the Evening News offices for a quick visit.
Standing 17 hands high, the puppet has helped the production take in excess of £2 million at the Festival Theatre box office.
Accompanied by Lee Armstrong, who plays Albert in the hit show, and Finn Hanlon, who plays Lieutenant Nicholls, Joey met the staff of the Evening News.
If you have missed out on Joey at the Festival Theatre, there’s a chance to catch him in action on February 27 when National Theatre Live will screen the London West End production into cinemas around the Capital, including Vue Ocean Terminal, The Cameo, Wester Hailes Odeon and Lothian Road Odeon.
