We deeply regret to announce that due to low advance ticket sales and other unforeseen events this year’s puppet festival was cancelled. The shows and performances planned for the festival¬†will now be spread out across Autumn and Spring. Announcements about these and other events will be published on our up-front.com website and our Facebook page.

The Victoria Wood Foundation, who were partly funding the festival, have kindly agreed with us that it is prudent in the present uncertain economic climate to spread out the events to enable as many people as possible to enjoy the shows. The puppeteers and puppet companies involved in the festival have also kindly agreed to reschedule their dates.
