PUPPETS, illusions, creative arts and storytelling are to be the focus of a two-day festival that is returning to Warwickshire for the first time in three years.
The newly-named Equip Festival takes place at Rugby College on Friday (October 28) and Saturday (October 29).
Previously known as the Puppet and Creative Ministry Festival, the event – which aims to inspire, encourage and resource creative arts enthusiasts – is back after being cancelled twice due to the pandemic.
Over 750 puppets will be on display and in use at the festival.
Ian Jones, Managing Director at One Way UK, said: “It’s great to be taking our show on the road again, and we are back with a bang this year with a fantastic selection of hands-on workshops, incredible showcases to wow and inspire, a huge range of resources on display, and with dedicated youth and family ministry training.
“We hope the 2022 Equip Festival will generate buzz, excitement and fun for everyone who walks through the doors of Rugby College, whose vast and versatile ground floor space has provided us with the perfect opportunity to mark the first year of the event’s rebrand with an expanded programme.
“We hope to welcome budding creative arts enthusiasts, as well as veterans, to the event – and we can’t wait to equip them with information to help feed their passion.”
