Victorian Style Puppet Theatre - The home of International Purves Puppets. Theatre seating 100 showing special glow in the dark large scale puppet shows for ages 1-100.

The International Purves Puppets have now been firmly established as a leading professional company for 40 years, in which time they have toured the world, while also performing in their own award winning permanent theatre - the first and only fully working puppet theatre of its kind in Scotland.

The company are household names throughout the UK having been welcomed in towns and cities up and down the country - as well as making numerous TV appearances, but even more impressive is the number of countries they have been invited to perform in: France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Germany, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Jordan, Syria and Singapore.

Their performances are given by large scale puppets (designed specifically for full-size theatres) and manipulated in Bunraku style by professional puppeteers. Most productions are performed in 'Black Light', where both the puppets and scenery glow like magic, while the operators seem to disappear among a kaleidoscope of fluorescent colours.

They have now played to nearly three generations. Children that they originally performed to are now grown up and return with their own children. In this way, our magic has become so much a part of people's happy childhood memories. The name 'Purves Puppets' is established as "The Scots word for puppetry".

Tearoom, playpark and coach car park on site.
