The Lambert Puppet Theatre building contains various facilities for both the private and corporate client. The theatre itself seats up to 250, depending on the requirements of the event. The stage itself can be up-to 6m wide by 5m deep.

The theatre venue is equipped with modern sophisticated sound and lighting equipment.

On the ground floor the venue has a large foyer, coffee and sweet shop, which also contains a large variety of large glove puppets and finger puppets.

Upstairs, the building houses Ireland’s only museum of puppetry, a small studio space suitable for rehearsals and small scale productions and our dedicated party room, which can cater for all kinds of events from birthday parties to corporate events.

The party room can accommodate multiple children’s parties at any one time or a larger corporate group.
