  • Mission statement

    Known as 'the home of British Puppetry', Little Angel Theatre is one of the country's oldest children's theatres, and one of only three purpose-built puppet theatres in England. Established in 1961 our 100 seat theatre is the centre of our activities standing side-by-side with our workshop, where new productions and puppets are made. We are dedicated to the celebration and development of puppetry and live animation in all its diverse forms. We provide excellent, high quality puppetry theatre, participation activities and training for age 0 to 100. We are committed to working with children, young people and families, both through schools and the local community. We particularly work with hard to reach children and young people in partnership with local community groups.
