Bristol Festival of Puppetry 2015

Bristol Festival of Puppetry 2015

27/08/2015 to 06/09/2015

Bristol Festival of Puppetry is the only English Festival to celebrate the artform of puppetry on stage and film, attracting audiences from far and wide to the city. For the first time in 2015 they are spreading their wings across the city to present puppetry on land and water.

Expect a rich and diverse programme that presents local and regional companies and artists, while showcasing some of the very best international puppetry and animation.

Previous festival highlights
Special events included Peter Lord (Aardman Co-founder and Puppet Place Patron) hosting a night of his favourite short films, Tom Morris (Bristol Old Vic Artistic Director and co-director of War Horse) presented an open masterclass on puppetry for the big stage with original War Horse puppeteer Toby Olié and Ulrike Quade made a welcome return after her sublime performance of The Writer at the 2011 festival.

Families are finely catered for with a fun and interactive programme of shows and opportunities to take part in. In 2013 these include practical puppetry workshops, the Creatures of Bristol Carnival, the Puppet Trail along North Street and Open Doors day at Puppet Place and 2015 promises much more.
