A Puppet Barge not to be missed
Take in a puppet show whilst bobbing on the water.
Location: Little Venice, W9 2PF
Description: The first performance on the barge was presented in 1982. Described as one of London's more elusive treasures, it is an established 50 seat theatre with comfortable seating and all modern facilities.
A unique venue, it is fully heated in the winter and cooled in the summer. The Puppet Barge is rich in atmosphere and provides the ideal setting for the imaginative shows produced by this company.
The theatre presents marionette and rod puppet spectacles throughout the year, spending the winter in Little Venice, central London and the summer on the River Thames from July to October giving performances at Henley-on-Thames, Marlow, Cliveden and Richmond-on-Thames.
