Moving Parts: Puppetry Festival

In April 2019, I served as the technical assistant for Newcastle's puppet festival. I was responsible for assisting the theatre technicians to put on up to three puppetry shows a day, as well helping with other background tasks that make the festival function . At the end of the week I acted as venue manager for one of the many venues on the busiest day. Solely responsible for the smooth running of two shows and a workshop.

This was a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills in Lighting, Sound, Rigging, and event management,  as well experience the vibrant puppetry culture from across the UK and Europe.
