PuppetSoup have received many five star reviews, awards and prizes for our work.
PuppetSoup create high quality puppet theatre, puppetry courses and puppet making workshops for a broad demographic of audiences.
We endeavor to make theatre that is innovative, entertaining, challenging and self sufficient. We are largely unfunded and our reviews and work are the result of a whole team of dedicated artists who devote themselves to making ‘Puppetry for everyone’.
