Welcome to the 2015 Witham International Puppet Festival

Witham Town Council is delighted to present the annual International Puppet Festival. A fantastic day is planned for you with something for everyone to enjoy, all presented in the area in and around the two shopping precincts of the Grove and Newlands and the High Street.

Puppets will be 'Meeting and Greeting' visitors along the High Street, and there will be a static Dragon act opposite the Town Hall. Join in with the scarecrow puppet making workshops in the Grove Centre which will take place throughout the day. Take part in 'Up Against the Wall' in the Newlands Centre, an opportunity to add to a collective artwork of marvellous proportions. A full programme of smaller puppetry will take place in Witham Library, 18 Newland Street throughout the day.

The 'Puppet Festival window display' competition for the town centre businesses will be on the theme of 'Dragons'. There will be a 'spot the dragon logo' competition for the younger age group, details can be obtained from the Councillor's Stall in the Grove Centre on Puppet Festival Day.

Once again Cofunds is delighted to support Witham Town Council with the sponsorship of Titan.
