Cardboard Carnival

Lempen Puppet Theatre Company

Lempen Puppet Theatre’s 20th production!

 Trunk, Tail, Ears or Wings? Carnival creates itself from all sorts of things! 

 With their inimitable style Lempen use the fantastic music of Camille Saint-Saens and a little help from Charles Darwin, to explore the material of cardboard, movement and invention.  The outcome is an accessible, visual production, refreshingly focussed on the magic of puppetry to leave audiences inspired by both the animal theatricality of the music and the creative potential of a simple cardboard box!


A delight for everyone from 4—104!


‘Lempen always makes things magic—

a very special quality.’


‘Very clever animals and variety.  I particularly loved

the swan and the underwater scene!’
