During August St John’s Hall Gallery will be busy preparing for the Large Puppet Carnival
that will walk through Barmouth on August 26th.THE CARNIVAL HAS BEEN POSTPONED but we are still looking for volunteers to help with puppet making (more info).
Volunteers are needed during August to help build the large puppets.
Last year’s carnival procession can be seen on YouTube.
We will return to the hall for a day and evening of interesting events – performances and entertainment.
We encourage groups to form and create their own puppet for this event. Let’s get together and make something hum. Come and see what we are doing. Make suggestions. A sort of Madi Gras of large puppets would liven the procession up a bit.
Barmouth Puppet Theatre Project
At the same time we will be running puppet workshops where you or your child may like to help build a puppet theatre, which will perform its play during the carnival. We will make puppets, scenery and the theatre itself. Think of a simple play, write the words, and make the music. The more children and parents come the more puppets we will have to use in the theatre.
Puppet workshops will take place on Thursday and Saturday between 2pm and 4pm.
Cost per person £5
Bring old clothes. We supply all the materials.
Maybe this will become a puppet festival.
Please call in to the gallery for more information or ring 07767862382.
