About Us

Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival is a biennial event for the people of Tunbridge Wells and Kent. The programme showcases puppetry in all its forms and is designed for the whole family to enjoy.

Following the huge success of the inaugural festival in October 2015, the festival took place again in October 2017 and was even bigger and better, drawing huge crowds and delighting audiences of all ages. There was a partnership with global theatrical phenomenon Disney’s The Lion King, shows for babies and toddlers, great family orientated performances for those with primary school aged children and some moving, funny, brilliant puppetry for teenagers and adults.

The next Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival is 11 – 13 October 2019

We hope you will come along and enjoy the wonderful array of puppetry, animation and theatre right here on your doorstep in Tunbridge Wells.
