Puppet Wales in Education aims to provide a rich, valuable and unforgettable experience of live theatre through the powerful medium of puppetry. This exciting and unique educational touring puppet theatre integrates live action, music and beautifully handcrafted puppets with visually delightful and enchanting tales written for specific age groups, through the medium of English and Welsh. Our puppeteers are also experienced workshop facilitators, delivering creative rod puppet and shadow puppet making sessions to groups of all ages.
