Puppet Picnic and World Record Attempt

The Puppet Picnic is the closing event of this years festival.

As part of the event we will be holding a WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT for the MOST PEOPLE WEARING SOCK PUPPETS.

The current record stands at 365 PUPPETS and was set in Townsville Australia.

Sock Puppet workshops will be held throughout the day, and you can also bring your own puppets from home; keep an eye on our website and Facebook for sock puppet tutorials.


As well as workshops and the record attempt, The Puppet Picnic will see the world première of a new show by the Dowtcha Puppets Youth Ensemble.
