Moving Parts: Newcastle Puppetry Festival 2019


Moving Parts: Newcastle Puppetry Festival returns to the North East in April 2019 with a new ambitious programme to engage all the family. Building on the success of its sell-out debut season in 2017 and through funding from Arts Council England, the Moving Parts programme includes nine days of unique puppetry performances, films, masterclasses, talks, networking events, live music, and breath-taking outdoor shows for adults, children, and families.

The festival is perfect for families looking for activities over the Easter Holidays. Events will be spread across six Newcastle city centre venues:

- Dance City

- Space Six

- Seven Stories

- Ouseburn Farm

- Cluny 2

- Alphabetti Theatre – the festival’s hub

An opening weekend celebration on Northumberland Street will showcase the free large outdoor puppetry acts such as ‘Join the Parade’ by Compagnie with Balls from The Netherlands. Other free events include the ‘Puppetry for Children Day’ in the Ouseburn on Saturday 13 April, which will include shows, activities and walkabout performances for all the family.
