People behind the puppets
Over the past 60 years, a huge range of designers have brought their unique puppet designs to life on the Little Angel Theatre stage.
In this new online series, Little Angel’s very own Little Angel puppet will meet and interview several different designers to find out more about their experiences of puppetry design and why they love working in the field.
Bertie… is our brand new first-ever digital series!
Bertie is an environmental entertainment and education series or children aged 3 to 8 on LAT’s YouTube Channel. Children will learn about different environmental issues and consider how they can take their own steps to help combat climate change.
All puppets and set have been designed and made using found and recycled materials – LAT is committed to environmental sustainability in our actions as well as in our content.
Whether it’s a show or a workshop that you’re after, we have lots of different activities you will need here.
