The #1 Best-Rated in TripAdvisor for Theatre & Concerts in South Lanarkshire

Outstanding

The morning show is specifically aimed at young children, with nurseries traveling for miles to let their kids see the puppets. It kept our 2 year old and 5 month old entertained the entire time.

First saw Purves Puppets at the Edinburgh festival when my sons were young, now taking the grandchildren. Wonderful children’s theatre. Excellent entertainment, and lovely staff
