Welcome to the 2016 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.

The theme of this year’s Puppet Festival is ‘Magic and Mystery’, look out for the town centre businesses who have decorated their windows accordingly.  New for 2016 all Witches and Wizards are invited to come along in costume and enter the Fancy Dress Competition, judging at 1.40 pm opposite the Library. 

Free craft workshops will take place throughout the day opposite the Library in Newland Street.  A full programme of storytelling for younger visitors to the festival will take place in the Library.

Cofunds is, once again, delighted to support Witham Town Council with the sponsorship of Titan the Robot.
