Event Information

Presented in partnership with Kaleidoscope

You just can’t have a festival celebrating the history of television without an event about puppets. Puppets have been a part of the television landscape since the very first black and white TV sets entranced families with the tales of Andy Pandy and Muffin The Mule. Kaleidoscope let their inner child loose for this warm and fuzzy celebration of the extensive world of TV puppetry. Join Monty & Co and the legendary Zippy for a whole lot of felt-based fun, as well as some rare gems from the archives featuring Sooty and the Muppets, plus a nostalgic nod to regional puppet mascots such as Tingha and Tucker.

Purchase all 7 Kaleidoscope-supported events for £49.
