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. 


Rust & Stardust is proud to be an Arts Award Supporter. Find out more about our education work and Arts Award offers here

We are looking forward to some exciting work in 2019. We are delighted to have been funded by Applause Rural Touring to create Tweethearts, a brand new show for families, which will tour Kent and Sussex this summer, and are off to beautiful Norfolk to collaborate with the Starwing Brewery at their summer festivals.

Our Puppet Parties are 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
