World of Puppets
Marlborough is a town steeped in arts of literature, the arts and with a community of skilled puppet-makers. We think we should spread the word that some of the world's most iconic puppets were born here. We come together to celebrate fantastic performances from some of the world’s cleverest puppeteers and which includes fabulous creations from our very own schools and businesses. We get involved and we would like you to join us and have some fun. Nearly every member of our town has a connection with the Pelham factory founded by a visionary puppet maker, Bob Pelham. We want local talent to develop and use its creativity for the good of our thriving townsfolk. We want to entertain and make everyone smile - our pre event programme starts us off with shows and exhibitions to local nursing homes, hospices and where we think you may like to see some amazing puppets.
