Every year, Puppet Animation Scotland produces two festivals in Scotland.

MANIPULATE is an international visual theatre, animation and puppetry festival taking place in the depths of winter, and presents striking, visually led work to adult audiences in Edinburgh and beyond.

PUPPET ANIMATION FESTIVAL is a family-focused nationwide event, touring to up to 100 locations across Scotland and Northern England during 3 weeks over Easter every year.

Through these festivals we have presented the work of hundreds of artists to thousands of audiences of all ages, in diverse locations around the country. To find out more about the festivals, including upcoming dates, what’s on, or how to present your work as part of each, please select the links above.
