We have amazing news! Three company pledges of £250 so far!! 
Norwich Puppet Theatre is delighted to announce 3 companies have pledged to support our newly launched Passport to Puppetry Scheme. Thank you:

  • Fosters Solicitors
  • Osiris Technologies
  • Misternic management consultants

Could your company be the next to help us achieve the critical mass of 10 pledges for just £250? Why would your company want to help this Christmas?

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.  With help from Norfolk Chamber of Commerce we are inviting local businesses to support the first wave of a new fund enabling Passports to Puppetry.  How it will work:

  • 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 us to launch with 25 passports allowing access to 4 show and workshop events at Norwich Puppet Theatre at no cost to their families, growing to 40 or 50 next year.

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, with an accompanying adult, will have the opportunity to journey into the magical world of puppetry.
We are working with leading local charities and services to set up safe and secure connections between the families with children we aim to benefit and ourselves – Break, Benjamin Foundation, Nelson’s Journey and others.
Chair of trustees, Nic Hopkins said,
“Sponsorship will give children access to enjoyable, exciting and inspirational creative and cultural activities for free. Our supporters will make a major contribution the overall costs to make all this additional access to smiles happen.  Our partners will help us link to the right children and families and help us manage these sensitive relationships really well.”
“Sponsors will share in the opportunities to use stories of involvement in Passport to Puppetry in their own publicity.  At the same time this scheme will help Norwich Puppet Theatre provide meaningful and enriching experiences for everyone."
