In partnership with the Tobacco Factory, Bristol City Council and Aardman Animations, Puppet Place is planning Bristol’s first ever festival dedicated to puppetry in all its forms, from socks to latex and street theatre to celluloid. The festival offers something for everyone, with a range of performances, workshops, films and exhibitions featuring the best of local, national and international talent. The Tobacco Factory - the hub for most Festival events - will be taken over and transformed into a Puppet Place, filled with shows, installations and events - all designed to inspire, provoke and entertain.
