Lambert Puppet Theatre

The Lambert Puppet Theatre & Museum is a puppet theatre located in Monkstown, County Dublin, Ireland. It is a family run business established in 1972 by Eugene Lambert, and hosts an international puppet festival annually. It used to produce children's television series on Radio Telefís Éireann, such as Wanderly Wagon.[1] The theatre is currently being run by Eugene's son, Liam. On August 28, 2015, the theatre was badly damaged in an arson attack, causing over €150,000 worth in damage.[2][3] On 13 November 2015, the theatre re-opened to the public with re-built puppets, for the Christmas performance of Aladdin.[4]
