We are looking forward to some Christmas delights over the next few years. We are part of Brighton Artists Open Houses with a group exhibition, Puppets, Portraits and Performance at the Regency Town House. We will be performing our delightful parlour show The Regency Town Mouse with puppets and carols on 9 December - book tickets now! We are also back at the Bluebell Railway for A Horsted Christmas on 21 December, which promises to be full of festive cheer! 

We are delighted to offer our Puppet Parties - the perfect handmade fun for your child's birthday or special day! For more information and booking enquiries click here. We've just added two brand new tales, Dazzling Diamond and The Tale of Piggy Pirate In The Stormy Straits - check them out now!

Most of our work is available for touring, festivals, schools and events. Please contact us for touring information and costs. We are also open for puppet commissions for theatre, film and individuals, so please do get in touch
