The Tin Forest is about a lonely old man who lives in a dreary junkyard, full of other people’s broken and unwanted junk. He dreams that one day his world will be full of life, colour and sound. His wish is about to come true…

An uplifting, humorous and touching show, full of visual invention, puppetry and live music…with mechanical birds, a wind-up circus and exotic animals. The show has no words and is based on the book by Helen Ward, illustrated by Wayne Anderson, published by Templar.


PuppetCraft is based in Devon and was founded in 1990 by John Roberts.   PuppetCraft makes quality, inventive Puppet Theatre, presenting shows and workshops to a wide range of audiences: children, families and adults. 

The shows are noted for beautifully crafted puppets in stunning sets with atmospheric lighting and specially composed live music. The content of shows extends from traditional folklore from different countries, to original modern tales.

The company varies from 2 to 18 performers, makers and musicians and tours throughout Britain and internationally.
