Cork Puppetry Festival | Puppet Picnic Photos!

Children, parents and grannies came out in their droves last Sunday for the Puppet picnic and for the first year ever – so did the sun!

Tailskinner the Tree performed his Go Feral dance with the kids and Dowtcha Puppets had workshops and shows on the day. Some football savvy seagulls even turned up on the day (Video)

Thanks so much to everyone who came out – It was great day!
