Handpicked joins Rosehill at their Family Puppet Festival!


Paper Cup Puppets

Join Janice and Helen from Handpicked Productions to create weird and wonderful paper cup puppets. Think about the characters your puppets could be. Are they the evil Cup Master? The daring Princess Paper Cup? Or the silly and valiant Sir Cup Alot?


Your imagination is limitless

Thursday 17 August 1-4pm Rosehill, Moresby, Whitehaven, CA28 6SE  01946 692422

Further info:
An afternoon of free puppetry making and performance on the grounds of Rosehill Theatre. We will be showcasing the fantastic A la Puppet Carte by Thingumajig Theatre, a selection of walkabout puppets from across Cumbria, and workshops led by Theatre Factory and other local artists.

On the “A la Puppet Carte” menu is a pair of pop-up puppet stages built onto the back of electric tricycles. Each mobile stage is a show full of surprises, fun, and a heart-warming story of friendship and a sense of home.

Theatre Factory will be bringing a workshop for all ages and abilities in making 'split pin' puppets' and a walkabout performance with our ENORMOUS puppet lady. Her name is Hugel, and she is a spirit of the earth.

Theatre Factory works in many forms: theatre (indoors, outdoors, and online), animation, writing, digital, and sound. We make stories in collaboration with children, young people, and the occasional adult. Their ideas, your ideas, are at the heart of everything we do. We share those stories locally and regionally from our home in Barrow-in-Furness.

This event will be family-friendly and suitable for all ages.

No need to book. Please drop in at any time during the event. Rosehill will post the performance times of the event closer to the day.
