Norwich Puppet Theatre is one of only a handful of theatres in England that is dedicated to creating, presenting and supporting innovation in puppetry and related art forms. Throughout the year, NPT programmes leading international puppetry companies for Early Years audiences, families and adults. We also create and tour our own productions; recent shows include The Tinderbox, Pied Piper and Red Riding Hood. We hold regular workshops for all age groups and provide professional development opportunities with masterclasses led by leading figures within the industry.
The Theatre is housed in a Grade 1 listed Medieval building in the centre of Norwich, the church of Saint James, which still includes many original features but is also now home to a large family of puppets.
