Norwich Puppet Theatre Full Description
Norwich Puppet Theatre offers you a venue with the exterior of a church and the interior of an intimate theatre - yet able to accommodate up to 165 guests to your ceremony. There are two spaces licenced for ceremonies - the Main Theatre which offers theatre style seating for up to 165 and a stage to get married on, and the Octagon Studio which is a more contemporary space for a ceremony for up to 30 guests. You can choose just to have your ceremony with us, or add on time for a drinks reception, afternoon tea or a buffet and disco - it's your day so the choice is yours. The space is yours to decorate as you wish - we have already welcomed a summer park scene, oceans of flowers and Christmas theme. We can even make puppets for you to remember your day by! Each ceremony is special to you, and to us, so we will work with you to make it YOUR day to remember.
