Ards Puppet Festival 2018

Northern Ireland’s only Puppet Festival will be taking place in Newtownards this May! Bigger and better than ever, expect a programme jam-packed with puppet fun and antics!

Over three days, the town will come to life with an eclectic mix of free scheduled performances, free puppet workshops and plenty of characters to meet.

We are delighted to present puppets and puppeteers from near and far, street theatre, walkabouts, fantastical creatures, music and lots more!
