Home to the Movingstage Marionette Company, The Puppet Theatre Barge is one of London’s more unusual and elusive treasures.
An established 55-seat theatre, The Puppet Theatre Barge is rich in atmosphere and provides the ideal setting for the magical and imaginative shows produced by this famous company of puppeteers.
The Theatre Barge has been open since 1982 and, during that time, it has hosted thousands of performances. With all the conveniences and facilities of a modern venue, it is now an established part of the London theatre scene and presents shows throughout the year.
Each August and September, the barge travels the Thames, stopping to present a season of shows in Richmond. The company then returns to its regular mooring at Little Venice, from where it stages its unique brand of entertainment for the next 10 months.
Movingstage aims to present high quality, innovative theatre with a view to raising the status and profile of the marionette. It therefore continues to commission new scripts and musical scores, whenever possible, from contemporary writers and composers.
The company maintains an active educational policy and runs a programme of work in schools, reaching large numbers of children each year.
