Puppet show free for children on the market in Bruges
Young and old are attentive to this game

But the history of puppetry is much richer. And West Flanders plays an important role in that story. West Flemish companies are particularly active in the pedagogical theater. Since the 1950s, enthusiasts have been tinkering with puppets and bringing their educational stories for children and young people. In addition, these puppeteers show a lot of creativity. They invent scenarios, make dolls, design decors and play masterfully on their audience.
But the West Flemish puppet theater is more than just a clap theater. For example, it is a Bruggeling that draws the first puppet show in the Middle Ages, the Flemish writer Albrecht Rodenbach is a big fan of the puppet show, and West-Flemish are the basis of companies that harvest international praise today.

I hope that you enjoy it
