7th Beverley Puppet Festival -  Dates tbc

This biennial festival will continue to offer something for everyone. Previous festivals have introduced performances suitable for adults and teenagers and only limited by the imagination of the puppeteer. This is in line with a national trend sparked by shows including spectacular puppetry, such as Warhorse.

Children’s shows have proved popular with young children and their families. The shows planned range from traditional Punch & Judy and well known fairy tales to beautifully told parables relating to the world around us.

The Puppet Festival will be held in a number of venues around Beverley Town Centre and free street performances are also planned.


Beverley Arts Trust plan, organise funding for, and run the Beverley Puppet Festival.
