Launch Invitation


Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival invites you to the launch of the 2017 festival, at Trinity Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on Friday 13th October from 11.30am – 4pm

You will have the opportunity to;


  • See an exhibition of masks and puppets from the West End’s Lion King production.


  • Attend the Lion King Masterclass.


  • Participate in our first professionals’ networking meeting with a chance to tell us about your work, festival or latest project.


  • Take part in a discussion on ‘Puppetry is unique’. In view of the huge success of War Horse and Lion King, why does puppetry remain  misunderstood and unrecognised as an art form in its own right. What can puppeteers and puppetry festivals do to address this?
