Puppet Animation Scotland’s new Touring Programme supports visual theatre and puppetry artists to reach communities across Scotland with their work throughout the year.

As we move away from our festival model after 39 years of puppetry over the Easter holidays to a more flexible year round approach to supporting artists to engage audiences more regularly we celebrate the success of a festival that introduced puppetry and visual theatre to audiences across the country, from Shetland to Dumfries & Galloway and everywhere in between and has led to established relationships between PAS, venues and community bookers that have created a strong venue network for puppetry and visual theatre that we hope this extended time scale for booking touring work will grow in the coming years!

Our first submission window opened in August 2022 for submissions by artists and companies interested in touring work to arts venues, community spaces and outdoor sites from Feb 2023 to August 2023.  Venues will have access to the curated programme pack from Sept to see what’s available for their Spring and Summer programmes.

A second submission window will open in March 2023 for submissions of work available to tour across the Autumn and Winter, bookings from September 23 – Jan 24.

If you are a venue interested in receiving the list of touring works, please get in touch at [email protected] for a copy of the touring pack and to be added to our mailing list.

If you are an artist with work you’d like to share, please find out more about support from Puppet Animation Scotland through our Perform and Screen page.
