Norwich Puppet Theatre is situated on the edge of the city centre, a short walk from the Cathedral. Housed in a Medieval Church it is one of only two building based puppet theatres in England.

The Theatre was founded in 1980 by Ray Da Silva whose dream of creating a theatre dedicated to puppetry and its allied arts was realised here in Norwich. Now in its 29th year Norwich Puppet Theatre presents pioneering children’s puppetry from national and international companies.

As well as offering an extensive programme of children’s puppet making workshops Norwich Puppet Theatre has opportunities for adults to get involved in the craft too. At least once a season the Puppet Theatre gives adults a chance to show off their creativity at a puppet making workshop – all abilities are welcome. In addition to this, if you are seeking a more thorough immersion in puppetry Norwich Puppet Theatre is home to a weekly evening class in Puppet Making. Led by Denise Hargrave and Peter Butler the evening course attendees have the opportunity to learn more about the construction of various types of puppet.

Evening entertainment including puppetry is also increasingly provided at Norwich Puppet Theatre.

The Puppet Theatre has become a second home to various theatre groups including - Theatre101, Black Ram, Laughing Monkey and Norwich Young People’s Theatre.

The venue’s 185 seater raked auditorium and intimate 50 seater Octagon Studio are also available for hire. All evening events can be serviced by a licensed bar. It's Fun for one Fun for All!
