Hall of Dreams

We are delighted to have been commissioned by Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival to create Hall of Dreams, a unique promenade piece which tells stories of the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells through puppetry, music and performance.

This summer, Hall of Dreams is a work in progress that comprises three promenade performances plus a workshop for young people. The finished piece will be presented during the Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival in October 2019. We’d like to thank everyone who has already contributed their memories of the Assembly Hall – and there’s still time to do so if you haven’t already! Please get in touch at

Tickets are now available for the workshop and FREE shows:
