Hire a Marionette Act for your event and you’ll get a talented puppeteer pulling the strings, artfully constructing a puppet show which will fascinate audiences who are lucky enough to be present!

The hired Marionettist will turn up at your event and perform a well rehearsed show with either a solo puppet or a multitude of puppets. They’ll have a host of classic stories and fairytales for you to choose from which may include ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, ‘The Three Little Pigs’, ‘Pinocchio’ and many more!

As well as children’s Marionette shows, there are also plenty of Marionette shows aimed towards a more adult audience. These shows have a very artistic tone with anything from satire to full ballets being performed by a live Marionette Act!
