Book to Celebrate 90 Years Promoting Puppetry

Postby Chris » 02 May 2015, 18:42

The British Puppet and Model Theatre Guild is 90 years old this year. On the 29th April 1925 around 15 of the first ever Guild members came together to discuss the formation of a Model Theatre organisation, it was at that very first meeting that The British Model Theatre Guild was formed, puppetry was added to the name a few years later.

This significant milestone has been celebrated in a limited edition hardback book that charts the Guild's history from its formation in 1925 to the many accomplishments it has achieved in those 90 years, including the first puppets on Television and the renaissance of British puppet theatre.

Lavishly illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs from the Guild’s archives and other collections this book is a limited edition of only 90 copies. It can be ordered online via Bob’s Books here: http://www.bobbooks.co.uk/bookshop/british-puppet-and-model-theatre-guild-1925-2015

Copies will also be available to purchase at the Guild’s AGM on May 9th and (should there be copies left) at the Covent Garden May Fayre on May 10th.

Order now to avoid disappointment and celebrate the 90th birthday of the world’s oldest puppetry organisation!
