The Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival returns this autumn following the success of the 2015 and 2017 festivals. The biennial event is a celebration of puppetry dedicated to bringing the very best of this artform to new audiences. 

Promising an even bigger, more varied and more colourful line-up than in previous years, it will be showcasing world class puppetry, animation and object theatre at venues across Tunbridge Wells town centre. 

Come and delight in the marvellously surreal, magical outdoor show A-TA-KA! appearing for the first time ever in the UK.

This stunning performance, which has travelled the world to festivals, features a musical spectacle using kites, torches and flying creatures, all inspired by the "melted dreams" of celebrated surrealist Salvador Dali.
