27th Puppet Theatre Festival

Sat 25th + Sun 26th November, 10am to 6pm

Come and listen to all the stories that our artists have to tell. Whether in big halls or small rooms, there are 19 stages of classic puppet theatre. There'll be traditional stories told in the traditional way and there'll be new interpretations told in a modern way.

Our curator, Stefan Maatz has done the hard work, visiting the stages, inviting the shows and preparing everything for the festival. In the stories that Virginia and Stefan tell, Pettersson gets a Christmas visit. Look forward to this and many more unique productions.
