Next show: The Green Children 

About Rust & Stardust

Rust & Stardust is a Sussex-based puppet theatre company. We're passionate about stories and storytelling, folklore and mythology, unconventional performance spaces and all things handmade. Our first production, The Wild Man of Orford, was shortlisted for the 2015 Fringe Sustainable Practice Award by the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts and Creative Carbon Scotland. 


We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with recorder quartet Palisander Dr Dee's Daughter and the Philosopher's Stonehas been funded by Arts Council England for a UK tour in 2017. 


This April we are returning to Orford for another collaboration with the Thomas Marshall Education Fund and another Suffolk folk tale, The Green Children of Woolpit. Click here for ticket information.


We are also looking forward to taking part in a group exhibition at the Hove Gallery & Museum with other Sussex puppeteers and artists - The Art of Puppetry: Making Magic In The Museum. 


We are also delighted to launch our brand new Puppet Parties - the perfect handmade fun for your child's birthday or special day! For more information and booking enquiries click here.
