The Harlequin Puppet Theatre, Britain's first and only permanent theatre designed and built for puppets, has, since 1958 entertained a vast number of adults and children and influenced the course of puppetry in Britain. This charming theatre seating 120 people is situated in its tree shaded garden only a few yards from the sea. The building, an architectural prizewinner, is of wood, glass and local stone. The theatre was directed by its founder, Eric Bramall, until his death in July 1996. It continues under the directorship of his partner, Christopher Somerville, who has been closely associated with the Harlequin since its earliest days. Typical shows:..A Cavalcade of Curiosities featuring traditional marionette trickery and some actual puppets from the 19th Century. .....Alice meets a variety of strange characters in scenes adapted from Carroll's Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass...... When Mr Trimble locks up the toyshop for the night he little knows that the toy soldier's reveille will bring the toys to life.
