National Puppetry Archive

The National Puppetry Archive

Items relating to puppets and puppet theatre are varied and reside in public and private collections throughout the UK and abroad. It is the aim of the National Puppetry Archive to bring these collections together, not physically, but virtually; linking our own digitised collection with other museum databases around the country. We also actively encourage those with private collections to share their items and the history behind them within our site.

The National Puppetry Archive and its collection is administered by The British Puppet and Model Theatre Guild, the oldest puppetry organisation in the world and co-curated by Michael Dixon, and Ray DaSilva.

The Guild’s own collection is currently being digitised and added to the database, which will form the basis of the online archive.
