Tucked away in the back streets of Islington, Little Angel Theatre is a hub of passionate puppeteering activity. Established by South African John Wright in 1961, Little Angel Theatre is London’s only permanent puppet theatre and stages diverse productions devised here or by visiting companies.
In a quaint twist that reveals the artifice behind the magic, the compact 100-seat theatre shares its space with the workshop where the marionettes are carved and developed. There’s a Saturday Puppet Club and workshops and events to inspire the next generation of puppeteers.
The shows are very much geared up for audiences of children, so expect to share the auditorium with chatty young’uns. Tickets are around £8-£10 for kids and a little more for adults.
Little Angel Theatre is a home for puppetry. Since its doors first opened in 1961 the theatre has been dedicated to creating and sharing inspiring stories. Puppetry is at the heart of this innovative theatre, from igniting the imaginations of the youngest minds to equipping tomorrow’s puppeteers with the tools they need to succeed. As well as an internationally recognised theatre with productions touring throughout the UK and across the globe, Little Angel Theatre also has its roots in Islington, and works with its local, diverse community to break down barriers to arts engagement so all can benefit and enjoy this remarkable art form.
