Support the Save our Puppet Theatre Campaign

The Evening News newspaper has been running a campaign to save the Norwich based Puppet Theatre following the planned cut to Arts Council cuts.

These cuts are tantamount to what has been described as "cull" for arts in the region, and may be the death nell for the Puppet Theatre.

The strategy appears to be to kill off arts at smaller venues and centralise it in larger metropolitan cities.

As only one of two such theatres in the country, this is essentially killing off a national treasure that has over the years given children and families pleasure and has fed their imaginations.

Information about the campaign, the petition, and video news items can be found on the Evening News web site.

Last weekend saw an event organised with hundreds of people attending and staging a march in the city to show support for the theatre, and protests against the cuts and the shambolic and questionable way in which decisions appear to have been reached on the funding.
You can watch a video of the event here.
You can download and display these campaign posters from the site.
