Dr Bunhead's Rubbish Puppet Adventures

Get ready to take your DIY puppets on their biggest, bravest adventures. 

Dr Bunhead's Rubbish Puppets tell science stories with things we throw away. Exploring the furthest frontiers of our imaginations, will your puppets save the world? Will they survive to tell their stories? Come and join our interactive puppet storytelling where the audience make their own puppets from recycled rubbish and create their own multi-puppet, environmental adventures!

This free event will include an interactive puppet story where audience members will take part to help bring it to life. Afterwards, you’ll start to see rubbish in a new light as you make your very own recycled puppets and learn how to animate them. Finally, as a family or with others, you will create your own scene/story to perform using your new puppets.

This event is for the whole family to get involved in – every person booked in will be expected to take part. Places are limited to 20 people (children and adults) in total so please be mindful of this when booking. Refreshments will be provided.
