Festival Organisers

Nottingham Puppet Festival is a partnership between Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall and City Arts (Nottingham).

Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall

With over half a million visitors every year, the Theatre Royal & Royal Concert Hall Nottingham are two of the UK’s most successful touring venues, leading the way for arts and entertainment in the East Midlands region. 

Their diverse programme of events includes internationally renowned orchestras, the highest quality ballet, opera and theatre touring companies alongside West End musicals, stand-up comedy, rock and pop. 

As well as Nottingham Puppet Festival, the venue’s Creative Learning department continues to develop major community projects through its partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Lottery Heritage Funding has enabled a significant programme of learning-based archive and heritage work for the venue. 

City Arts, Nottingham

City Arts break down barriers to reconnect people with art, culture and creativity. Every kind of barrier: economic, geographical, societal, emotional. Because creativity is a human right. 

Since 1977, the organisation has collaborated with communities and artists to create and explore art of all kinds. They make sure our work is inclusive and relevant by listening to what communities need. 

City Arts is a registered charity and is supported by Arts Council England and Nottingham City Council.
