The Laxey Puppets began in 2012 after a puppet team from OneWayUK came over to the island to do a training weekend.

We started with just 4 puppets and the older members of the Sunday School. We quickly learned that it was pretty difficult for even teenagers to hold the puppets up for long, so roped in some adults to help out. We now have a team of about 8 adults/teenagers to call upon. It does take quite a bit of stamina to keep your arm up straight above your head and remember to move the mouth in time to the words while trying to make them look as human-like as possible!

We try and use the puppets in family services and they perform songs and sketches, and have taken part in the Nativity together with the Sunday School children for the last 3 years. We now have a variety of puppets and costumes, including some animals and props to add an extra touch.

The puppets visited Sulby and Trinity Methodist Churches this year, to take part in special services, but their home is at Laxey Methodist, and everyone is more than welcome to come along and see them perform there. Their next service will be the Nativity on 11th December 2016.
