Norwich’s Unique Puppet Theatre Invites your Help launching a Charitable Passport to Puppetry
Our vision for Passport to Puppetry
Many young people live in financially restricted households or difficult circumstances, unable to afford access to creative cultural experiences which can greatly improve children’s health and well-being, sense of aspiration and ambition.
For 40 years Norwich Puppet Theatre has inspired, entertained and enriched audiences both nationally and internationally. This unique asset in Norwich is one of only three dedicated building based puppet theatres in the country.We champion the ancient, unique and multifaceted art of puppetry, welcoming children, young people, families and adults into a world of imagination and storytelling. Committed to providing creative entertainment and skills for everyone, Norwich Puppet Theatre has a long history of producing high quality puppet shows and workshops.
We would like to invite Norfolk Chamber members to consider supporting the first wave of a new fund enabling Passports to Puppetry. NPT Passports to Puppetry sponsorship will give children access to enjoyable, exciting and inspirational creative and cultural activities for free whilst at the same time supporting Norwich Puppet Theatre to provide meaningful and enriching experiences for everyone.
How it works
• Companies and individuals donate to our Passport Fund.
• The passport fund will support the work of Norwich Puppet theatre and allow us to offer Passports to children, enabling them to share and enjoy the wonderful world of puppetry.
• 10 donations of just £250 will enable 25 passports allowing access to show and workshop events at Norwich Puppet Theatre.
With the help of our project partners, passports will be issued to a child, family or group most in need of some smiles and will be valid for 1 year. Choosing from the exciting and vast array of performances and workshops in our public programme, each passport holder will have the opportunity to journey into the magical art of puppetry.

This is the earliest stage of developing an exciting initiative which we hope to grow well beyond our launch critical mass of 25 passports throughout our 40th Anniversary Year, 2020. We are working with leading local charities – Break, Benjamin Foundation, and a number of others – to set up safe and secure channels between the families with children we aim to benefit and ourselves. We are also talking to transport providers to find ways to overcome transport difficulties which will undoubtedly arise, including Norwich Door2Door.
We are really excited by the opportunities and hope you will be inspired too, and become a foundation sponsor helping to shape and grow a remarkable benefit for many children in need. In return, if your company wants to become a foundation sponsor, you will share in the opportunities to use stories of your involvement in subsequent publicity and profile opportunities, brand placement, joint marketing and promotions.
