Free puppet making workshops - part of Wor Seahorse Spectacle
Be part of something spectacular - a puppetry parade in the centre of Newcastle! Get creative, learn new skills and meet new friends.



The award-winning Newcastle Puppetry Festival is back for 2023 and there are lots of ways to get involved and be part of it.



We are looking for North East participants of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to work alongside our team of professional puppet artists. Through a series of friendly workshops, everyone involved will have the chance to make and perform with puppets, costumes and masks as part of a colourful parade to open the festival. No prior experience in puppet making or performance is necessary



Participants will learn about their local heritage, develop skills and improve their wellbeing through participation in creative activity. A series of workshops led by a heritage professional and 5 leading puppet artists will culminate in the creation of large scale seahorse puppets and of the River God Tyne. Joined by local musicians, participants will perform in a colourful, celebratory parade in Newcastle City Centre.
