Nottingham Puppet Club

A group for performers, designers and makers to share ideas, test new work and collaborate.

Nottingham Puppet Club

Nottingham Puppet Club members support each other to grow as artists. It is a space share new ideas and techniques. The club is a great way to meet other puppeteers and designers in the East Midlands.

How it works

Members will be invited to join our closed Facebook Group. Here we plan and discuss puppetry and Puppet Club events. If you don’t use Facebook we can find alternative ways to keep you in the loop.

We meet once every 3-months for a show-and-tell style session. You can showcase work-in-progress, give and receive informal critiques, and hear about the latest opportunities.

A performance at Puppet Cabaret

Puppet Cabaret is a scratch theatre evening where group members present new work to a live audience.

Regular co-working sessions take place at City Arts building in Hockley on the first Thursday of the Month. Members are welcome to use our building to work on projects, collaborate or simply complete admin tasks in the company of others.
