Pioneering Joy – Celebrating The Life and Puppetry of Rod Burnett

with Rachel McNally & Chris Pirie


Earlier this year the puppetry community was deeply saddened to lose a great puppeteer, Punch & Judy man and inspiration to all – Rod Burnett. Rod was passionate about the power of puppetry to fire our imaginations, transform lives and create magical experiences. He was a good friend and mentor to many of us and we invite you to join us at this final breakfast to celebrate Rod’s life and work and explore how we continue to light the imagination of future generations


Festival Breakfasts are an opportunity to meet over coffee and croissants to discuss ideas and issues around puppetry and celebrate the people who make it happen.
