Lempen Puppet Theatre Company tour their own unique brand of original stories told with puppets. Imaginative, spellbinding, surprising and sometimes bonkers, Lempen focus on puppetry, storytelling, light, music and a journey that takes the audience there and back again.
To make their theatre they are inspired by Myth and Folklore, by intriguing and unconventional characters, by their sense of humour and by matters that they care about. The company aims to produce quality productions for family audiences that connect the real world to the world of imagination.
Lempen Puppet Theatre tour extensively all over the UK, and have appeared at various festivals, theatres and schools in Austria, Belgium, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxenburg, Romania, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turks&Caicos.
Lempen mainly tour their own work but from time to time also make and direct for other companies, lead workshops. They are also directors for the Skipton International Puppet Festival.

the usual high standard of puppetry!”
