Puppet Animation Festival has run continuously since 1984, and in 2019 the festival will bring over 150 performances around 80 venues across Scotland and the North of England.

Puppet Animation Festival programmes a diverse range of events for children between the ages of 0-12 including puppet making and animation workshops, puppet theatre and animated films. Our nationwide programme includes events in English and Gaelic as well as performances for neuro-diverse audiences.

Puppet Animation Festival exists to bring quality theatre and animation to all audiences around Scotland, from the Islands and Highlands, to Borders and Central Belt. Our festival is always looking for new venues to travel to and new audiences to engage with. If you’d like to get involved please get in touch.

Puppet Animation Festival is produced by Puppet Animation Scotland. We champion visual theatre, puppetry and animation in Scotland.
