Today has seen the Official Launch of the Nottingham Puppet Festival. At last we can go public with this after two years of planning.  This is a collaboration between Theatre Royal Concert Hall (Nottingham) City Arts Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University (Theatre Design Department). I have been acting as an advocate for independent artists within these organisations and will be facilitating a group to make and activate a pack of  puppet dogs.          Here are some images of the launch today at the Concert Hall.

Just a few of the puppets that were seen today, including our new ‘Maid Marion’ on her horse,  who has been made especially for the festival as our mascot by Alison Duddle.

The Main Festival will take place fromThursday  22nd March till  Sunday 25th March
