The Hogarth Puppets

Bantock House Museum, Finchfield Road, WOLVERHAMPTON, West Midlands, WV3 9LQ
The Hogarth Puppets


Founded in 1932 by Jan Bussell and Ann Hogarth they started their careers with the earliest puppetry on television, their shows appearing live on Saturday evenings during the 1930s from a caravan theatre outside the BBC headquarters. During World War II, the London County Council commissioned them to entertain children in London parks, and this part of their work continued well after the war. The Hogarth Puppets toured internationally with their string puppets regularly visiting Australia, Asia, the United States and Europe. This exhibition looks at a range of their puppets including their most famous creation!
