Lempen Puppet Theatre

Cardboard Carnival

Trunk, Tail, Ears or Wings?
Carnival creates itself from all sorts of things!

With their own inimitable style Lempen have taken the fantastic music by Camille Saint-Saëns, and an exploration of the material of cardboard, to make a fun, visual production with no text, refreshingly focused on the simple magic of puppetry to leave audiences inspired by both the animal theatricality of the music and the creative potential of the simple cardboard box.

For ages 4+


Tue 19 Feb | 3.15pm | Child’s show ticket + workshop: £15 | 7+

The performance will be followed by a puppetry workshop. This 90 minute workshop will inspire you to make animal puppets out of everyday paper and recycled materials. Especially card, paper, tape + cardboard!

Working with the qualities and strengths of these simple materials we will show you designs that work as puppets that you can make and adapt to create your own unique creatures.

Birds, turtles, fish – whatever is your wish.
Fish, turtles, bird – or something more absurd!

For ages 7+
