A Puppet Theatre Afloat
It is a charming floating theatre, specifically marionette theatre! It holds 55 seats and has all the features of a modern theatre!
With the aim of raising the status of marionette, it is constantly running new shows with new scripts. It also reaches out to schools, influencing children all around the UK.
Shows are constantly changing depending on the season, and are definitely family friendly, so perfect for a family day out!
