VIP Puppets creates characters of epic proportions, teamed with moments of intimate audience interaction. We provide quality, larger than life puppet walkabout acts for festivals and events. Need a life-sized giraffe, and her baby? Or a ferocious lion you can pet? From a taste of the Serengeti (a whole menagerie of animals) to a high-end celebrity event (giant burly bouncers and snooty waiters), we’re here to help..... We also create bespoke puppets to fit the theme of any event.
VIP Puppets hand craft puppets and deliver performances at community events as far afield as Zambia and India, as well as creating work especially for our favourite festivals in the UK, including, Glastonbury, Bestival, Camp Bestival, and Skipton Puppet Festival.
Dolly the Giraffe: Dolly is a life-sized gentle giant of a giraffe who gracefully wanders where she pleases. She towers above her audience, but is always happy to lower her head to meet her biggest (smallest) fans, for a pet, or to nibble on some leaves.
Her team of attentive zookeepers is always on hand to train new recruits in feeding, and cleaning up her poo!
Dolly can wander alone, with her mate Kanye, or the newest addition to our zoo, her new baby Juno.
