Upfront Puppet Theatre
Where is it? : Unthank – in the countryside a few miles outside Penrith.
Telephone 017684 84538
We like it because : it makes us happy. A cosy little theatre in the countryside, the puppet theatre has brilliant shows and puppets and it’s so good that you really forget where you are when you are watching them. Really imaginative and full of surprises.
What’s it all about? : The Puppet Theatre is part of the Upfront Gallery which is in a converted farm. There are also great art and sculpture exhibitions here for extra ‘luring’ of the parents and a nice vegetarian restaurant and coffee shop too. The Puppet productions aren’t on all the time so you need to check their website for times and dates.
Also look out for : The gift shop has a brilliant range of puppets for sale.
Tips : Try and book early, this sometimes sells out quite quickly.
How much is it? : £8.00 per ticket. Family ticket £28 – 2 adults & 2 children or 1 adult & 3 children.
