The Skipton International Puppet Festival draws puppet performers and fans from all round the world to this colourful and unusual event every two years.

The weekend is packed with shows for children and adults. The shows take place in venues around town and many are free to attend.

Sunday’s performance includes an exciting, colourful procession through the streets where giant creatures create a spectacular finale to the fun. Performers and visitors travel to Skipton from around the world to participate.

Skipton BID is pleased to contribute to the Puppet Festival, thus enabling the festival team to access funding from many other organisations such as the Arts Council.
