Ever seen a weight-lifting mouse or Burlesque puppet show? Perhaps you’re a fan of the 80s hit Spitting Image, or F.A.B. about Thunderbirds? Whichever it might be, you’re in for a treat with all manner of performances and talks for older audiences at the Nottingham Puppet Festival.

Catch some late-night puppet cabaret, a gritty streetwise take on Sleeping Beauty, be mesmerised by The Parachute and moved by The Luckiest Girl Alive.

Hear from some of the team that brought us Spitting Image including the voice of Thatch at a special screening and talk. Another special is the Thunderbirds Are Go screening and Q&A with Jamie Anderson, son of Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson.

Grab your tickets now for some shows and more with a difference.

Check out this film below to see Stephen Mottram’s beautiful The Parachute.
