Beverley Puppet Festival is back! (but not as you know it.) As Covid-19 wreaks havoc to live events everywhere, the biennial Festival is taking a new-look and highly-innovative offering online.
Thanks to the magic of the internet, audiences can still access high-quality puppetry action from May through to July. Puppeteers are now creating video activities on the theme, 'Back to Nature', using simple materials easily sourced from everyday items. Three free workshops will be released per week via the Festival website and social media channels from Monday 18th May through to Sunday 12th July.

Donations can be made via

All ages welcome! Download the new festival app! Share your creations in the biggest online puppet gathering ever!

Beverley Puppet Festival 2020 is supported by Arts Council England, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Molescroft Parish Council.
