WORKING WITH THE COMMUNITY
2020 Educational Outreach Project
For the 2020 online festival, care home & sheltered housing residents in Beverley have taken part in a remotely created pilot project by Hull-based Anglo-Indonesian puppet company Indigo Moon Theatre. Thanks to the dedication of care home workers Elaine at Figham House, Amber at New House and others, residents now have an ongoing resource for shadow theatre using pre-prepared kits, a video tutorial and messages from outside.
We’re looking forward to seeing any further video clips or photos of everyone’s shadow theatre work, whether that’s a simple dance cast onto the wall, a singing puppet, or a story of choice to share with family and friends outside!

Beverley Puppet Festival has a long history of educational outreach projects. In the early days we worked with three artists in three different local schools, resulting in a collaborative showcase and / or town procession before the start of the festival. Since then we have also worked with adult service users at Miller’s Day Centre – producing a shadow theatre installation at Beverley Minster (2014) and a big plastazote “Dinodragonaurus” to interact with festival goers in the Friary Gardens (2018). In 2016 residents and family members of the Old Schoolhouse Care Home produced a shadow film which was shown during the festival.
