2020 FESTIVAL ARCHIVE
The award-winning Beverley Puppet Festival usually fills the streets with excited onlookers. Giant creatures roam Toll Gavel, Butcher Row and the Flemingate Centre; tiny magical worlds are revealed to unsuspecting audiences in the Friary Gardens and indoor shows for all ages from 3-103 take place at The Friary, East Riding Theatre, Beverley Masonic Hall and Toll Gavel Church Hall.
In 2020 however, the COVID-19 pandemic faced us with the painful prospect of cancelling it all. We decided instead to go online. This was a whole new adventure for the festival team and one that spanned two months instead of just one weekend. A huge thank you to all of the artists who took part to create our Activity Video Library which will remain online as a resource for all to enjoy.
