About

Tuesday 9 - Sunday 21 April | 2024
Various Venues

Nottingham Puppet Festival will return for the third time in April 2024. A range of events will be taking place between Tuesday 9 and Sunday 21 April that will showcase the many diverse and exciting forms that puppetry can take. Expect to see everything from giant Hindu gods in Listergate to hand-carved marionettes in Sneinton.

The Puppet Festival is produced by the Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall and arts charity City Arts (Nottingham). The event is funded by Arts Council England, thanks to money from the National Lottery, and is supported by Nottingham City Council.

The Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall will be hosting the acclaimed theatre production Life of Pi, based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel. City Arts will lead a community engagement programme showcasing puppetry in local libraries and community centres across Nottingham.

They will also produce a takeover of the city’s streets on Saturday 13 April featuring Mahogany Carnival Arts, who appeared in the Platinum Jubilee Pageant in 2022.

Other venues that will host a range of local, national and international puppet shows include Nottingham Playhouse, New Art Exchange, Squire Performing Arts Centre and Lakeside Arts. Broadway Cinema will be presenting a rare screening of David Lynch’s cinematic debut Eraserhead.
