An evening of Puppetry

The Norwich Puppet Theatre’s home is the lovely converted mediaeval church on St James place.

You may have visited as a child, taken your own children or grandchildren…or maybe you drive by on your way to work but it’s been home to a family of puppets, and a wonderful team for over 30 years.

They are a busy company, producing a range of new shows for families and children which play in Norwich before touring the UK and internationally. What is clear from our evening with the Trustees, volunteers and our members is their dedication to championing this special art form.

Our evening was to run alongside the launch of their Passport to Puppetry Project. We are so happy to support this amazing project which aims to help young people and their families who live in financially restricted households or difficult circumstances.

Guests joined us in the warm and welcoming theatre, with many of the puppet residents on view, and enjoyed a scrumptious buffet whilst chatting with guests and trustees.

After the tour, we made our way to the stage where we heard from Ian Woods who gave a us fantastic talk on the history of the puppets, and an insight into the behind-the-scenes life of the theatre. 

It was a fantastic evening, and the perfect surroundings to see the magic that children will enjoy and experience for themselves with the Passport to Puppetry project.
