Saturday 9 - Sunday 17 October is the 2021 Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival.
This year we’ll be presenting over 40 innovative and contemporary puppetry events for people of all ages including commissioned new work, the winners of our own ‘Unlocked’ puppetry competition, young peoples’ workshops and an extensive programme of puppetry performances. All celebrate this beautiful, often overlooked, artform.
There’s a mix of paid ticketed and free events taking place across the town’s iconic town buildings including Trinity Theatre, Assembly Hall Theatre, The Pantiles, The Forum, The Camden Centre and Royal Victoria Place as well as in the open-air, making the best use of our stunning open spaces.
The centrepiece of the Festival will be Luke Jerram's breath taking art animation Museum of the Moon, which will be suspended in Calverley Grounds providing the opportunity to see the moon floating in three dimensions. This stunning spectacle is 7m in diameter. A free to attend, three-day Instagrammer's dream - don’t miss it!
