Well this wasn’t the way we were expecting to celebrate our 50 years of Purves Puppets!
I’m sure you have heard in the news that the government have decided theatre’s are to close which is devastating news for our company.
Ian and Jill Purves are in the age bracket most at risk, so unfortunately they have to isolate themselves to make sure we are all safe.
We are asking if you can help us by postponing rather than cancelling, as it will help keep the theatre afloat, so that when this the emergency is over, we can get back to presenting wonderful shows.
We will honour your tickets for another date when it’s all over.
If you like, you can consider cancelling your tickets and help us by donating the ticket money to us at ForgoMyRefund.org
Hopefully we will all get through this and we will see you soon!!

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
