Bornholm Puppet Festival 2017 will take place from the 7th to 12th of September.
Bornholm Puppet Festival celebrates puppetry for children and adults alike. Puppetry is visual theatre that transcends language with numerous types of expressions and forms such as glove puppets, marionettes, rod puppet and shadow puppets. Famed for its buzzing artist community Bornholm is a Danish island full of creative minded people. The picturesque island of Bornholm, also known as the "Sunshine Island", situated in the middle of the Baltic Sea is the setting of the Bornholm Puppet Festival. Bornholm is a popular and easy accessible holiday destination close to Poland, Germany, Sweden and the Baltic Nations
