About

The first performance on the barge was presented in 1982. Described as one of London's more elusive treasures, it is an established 55 seat theatre with comfortable seating and all modern facilities and is unique. Fully heated in the winter and cooled in the summer, it is rich in atmosphere and provides the ideal setting for the imaginative shows produced by this company.

The theatre presents marionette and rod puppet spectacles throughout the year, spending the winter in Little Venice, central London, and the summer on the River Thames. Performances at Richmond-on-Thames take place from July to October.
