What’s On at The London Puppetry Festival 2013

As my 6-year old would say “…seriously, you have to check out the puppetry talent at this years Suspense London Puppetry Festival“. Watch the trailer above, and make up your own mind, but if you have a heart and like clever stuff (for adults mainly on this occasion), I think you will find it hard not to slightly love the humour, talent and story telling from these wonderful companies.

The festival is held between 12 venues with over 25 companies participating. New venues this year include The King’s Head, Battersea Arts Centre, and the Actors Centre & Tristan Bates Theatre . International companies come from the Netherlands, France and Spain, alongside the most innovative UK companies – all for adult audiences.

What’s more, the programme shows you who’s who in the world of performance, and which theatres invest in the future of this brilliant theatre.

  1. […] Little Angel Theatre is ‘the Home of British Puppetry’ and one of only three building-based puppet theatres in England. The venue itself is set behind uber-cool Upper Street, yet feels like you could have found it at the back of red riding hoods forest, on an island in Norway. The 100 seat theatre stands side-by-side with the workshop, where their puppets are developed, carved and constructed. They offer an imaginative Education Programme working with schools, youth and community groups, particularly in Islington and the surrounding boroughs. They also run participation activities such as our Saturday Puppet Club, Crafty Kids Club and Youth Theatre, and regular Kids Fun Days and holiday clubs. Read more about the kids courses and their annual puppetry festival Suspense here. […]
