"Everyone who's visited the Puppet Theatre Barge moored in

Little Venice, knows it's one of the most charming theatrical experiences London has to offer. From the moment you step aboard you're transported to the wonderful world of

Movingstage Marionettes, with their humourous,
song-filled string-alongs."

"My children were spellbound throughout and my senses
were so tangled up, I needed a minute or two to collect myself."

"A gorgeous and skilful performance at a great location. A visit to The Puppet Theatre Barge in Little Venice is the perfect treat for an adult or child."
