Inspired by David Bowie’s cult classic, Labyrinth, The Goblin King wishes to hereby invite you for an evening of magic, mischief, drink, and dance.

• Imbibe on butterbeer, and enjoy bellytimber from Cheese Wizards food truck
• Meet representatives from across the realms
• Watch knights face off in a live-action melee
• Consult a crystal ball reader
• And much more!

Countless movie fans remember Toby Froud for his role as the baby “Toby” who is wished away by Jennifer Connelly, his half-sister “Sarah,” in director Jim Henson’s 1986 feature film Labyrinth. As the son of the film’s conceptual designer and puppet builder, Froud has spent a lifetime steeped in a world of goblins, faeries, trolls, puppet theatre, and magic-making. Since 2010, Froud has been with Laika Entertainment, producer of the award-winning animated feature film Coraline. Froud was hired as puppet fabricator for the film ParaNorman, became a sculptor on Laika’s The Boxtrolls as well as their upcoming film, Kubo and the Two Strings. Froud continues to create creatures, puppets, and effects for film, as well as directing his own award winning short film, Lessons Learned.
