Little Angel Theatre is a home for puppetry. Since its doors first opened in 1961 the theatre has been dedicated to creating and sharing inspiring stories. Puppetry is at the heart of this innovative theatre, from igniting the imaginations of the youngest minds to equipping tomorrow’s puppeteers with the tools they need to succeed.
Folded Feather, in association with Little Angel Theatre, present a puppet-filled version of Chris Haughton's 'Don't Worry, Little Crab'. A short video which the whole family will love! Visit the Little Angel Theatre website to find more videos and even make your own Little Crab and Very Big Crab puppets.
Following its hugely successful 2019 West End run and national tour, Nigel Slater’s ‘Toast’ returns to the Lawrence Batley Theatre as an online play for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

Book one of the £16 tickets and you will receive a package of goodies including: a programme, recipe card from Nigel Slater and two Walnut Whips so you can have a heartwarming and stomach filling evening from your front room. What more could you want from a night at the theatre? Performances from 4th - 31st July.
Another brilliant Lockdown collaboration video doing the rounds is this spectacular instrumental version of 'Into the Unknown' from the Disney film Frozen 2. Not only does this video sound fantastic but the video wizardry that has gone into putting these recordings together is impressive. Hands up if you miss live music?? We do!
