The #1 Best-Rated in TripAdvisor for Theatre & Concerts in South Lanarkshire
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
Another adventure from the famous pair. This time Panda finds an unusual basket. Who does it belong to? Where did it come from? We’ll have to wait and see!
They visit the circus, where they meet two funny geese called Jiffy and Jaffy, and Sugar the dancing horse. There are many songs for you to join in and lots of fun too!
Come and see "Aladdin" performed like you've never seen it before!
Aladdin is the son of a very poor family living in Baghdad. One day he meets his long lost uncle, Abanazar, and so begins an adventure full of magic, wonderful surprises, and fantastic scenes.
Meet three funny mice called Bibbity, Bobbity and Boo - who help Aladdin on his journey to rescue Princess Yasmin. See fantastic special effects throughout this great production.
Don't miss out on all the fun!
It’s Christmas and Pips and Panda are posting their letters to Santa, when a little robin flies away with Panda’s letter!!
Jingle the elf takes them to Santa’s workshop so they can tell Santa what they want for Christmas. In the story we meet lots of characters, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and a funny computer! We also sing plenty of Christmas songs along the way too!
A special Christmas puppet show!
