Newcastle Puppetry Festival 2023

BOOKING FEES: We have to charge a £1 booking fee per checkout transaction. This is so that we can try to recoup some of the booking system charges, which are often much higher than £1.

CONCESSION TICKETS: Concessionary discounts, where offered, are applicable to under 18s, students, asylum seekers, refugees, disabled people, over 65s and unwaged people. Accompanying carers go free but please get in touch before booking.

CHILD TICKETS: All children must be supervised by parents/guardians. It is not advisable to bring children under the suggested age range of shows. All children require a ticket aside from babes in arms (unless the show in question is aimed at children under 36 months).

DISCLAIMER: The organisers reserve the right to change the programme due to unforeseen circumstances. In the event of bad weather please check our website and social media accounts.

LATECOMERS: Latecomers may not be allowed entry to performances after the advertised start time. Refunds are not able to be granted in this circumstance.

Please visit or email Vicky at for more information on access at the different festival venues. Most festival venues are fully accessible. Please note that Newcastle Arts Centre (Black Swan) has limited wheelchair user access. Wheelchair users are able to access the basement venue via a goods lift. An accessible toilet is on the ground floor of the venue. Unfortunately wheelchair users are not able to access the bar due to a series of steps, but our volunteers will be there to assist. H&B by Les Pieds Dans La Lune Cie takes place inside a caravan and is unfortunately not accessible to wheelchair users.
