News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

The Egg Theatre in Bath restarts its highly acclaimed programme for Early Years children this Thursday with the launch of Puppet Party, a five-week series of online activities streamed live from The Egg to your computer.

Led by two highly experienced and inimitable performers, Michael Loader from Somerset StoryFest and Tom Veck from Rocktopus, each session will take the form of a Puppet Party. Each week you and your children will celebrate a puppet birthday with a story, song, game and dance, before zooming off on an imaginary holiday to the puppet’s home island for a storytelling adventure that explores all the senses. 

Puppet Parties is designed to have you and your little one laughing together at all the funny characters that these two performers are going to introduce.

The first Puppet Party is this Thursday 25 February. The sessions are at 10am for toddlers (ages 18 months – 2 1/2 years) and at 11.15am for pre-schoolers (ages 2 1/2 – 4 years). The first session is a FREE taster session, and the next four sessions can be booked for £40. To sign up for the taster sessions, or to book for the full programme, please visit
