The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to think outside the box for our first online festival of puppetry.
The 2018 festival was the biggest yet, with giant dinosaurs and giraffes roaming the streets.
Mythical creatures, strange beasts, humanity’s inner journeys and so much more.
Fire-breathing dragons, giant hippos and dreamlike skeletons filled Beverley's streets in 2014.
Giant Punch & Judy characters and a special Danish show made 2012 one to remember.
A schools puppet parade kicked off the 2010 festival, followed by puppetry treats for all ages!
From small beginnings, the festival grew year on year between 2005 - 2008.
We have a long history of running puppetry projects in our local community.
