Ards Puppet Festival returns this Half Term with The Gingerbread Man

With a countdown to half term holidays, Ards Puppet Festival is excited to welcome back the wonderful and talented Banyan Theatre with several performances of the fast-paced adventure, The Gingerbread Man. 

Told using the magical craft of puppetry, enchanted storytelling and original music, this classic tale will capture the imagination of littles ones and be a tasty treat for all the family. 

‘Run, Run as fast as you can; you can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread man!’ 

Performances are being held at Ards Arts Centre on 26 & 27 October, at 12noon and 2pm on each day and tickets are £5. The show is suitable for age range 3+. 

Emily Crawford, Arts and Heritage Manager for the Council is delighted to be back “It is so great to be able to offer live puppet shows again. Sadly, we are unable to offer a full Puppet Festival this year, but we are thrilled that families will be able to get together to enjoy this magical show, from our amazing partners at Banyan Puppet Theatre.”
