The Festival of Curious Puppetry


The Festival of Curious Puppetry is a riot of exciting shows and events to inspire and engage people of all ages in puppetry in all its forms and fancies.

The festival will run alongside the Curious School of Puppetry’s professional full-time training which is taking place in Falmouth for the first time.

The festival is made up of the following elements:

The Exhibition

The Poly’s Spring Gallery will be home to a marvellous collection of puppets from around the world showing different techniques and makers.

The Performances

There will be 8 high quality puppetry performances across the festival which runs across Jan – March.

Please see website for more performance details:

Soup Nights

Soup nights are fun, informal, inspirational evening events open to anyone who is interested in coming along regardless of whether or not you know anything about puppetry.

At the end of the festival it’s time for the students of the Curious School of Puppetry to showcase what they have learned over the course and create two evenings of new work for anyone aged 7 and upwards.
