The Puppet festival will showcase a broad range of puppetry by the most exciting UK and international companies currently making theatre for young audiences.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for everyone to take part, with workshops for families, community events, fun days for children and courses for adults to try out the craft of puppetry.
