Watch Trailer

Everyone’s favorite twisted puppet show is coming to Leeds for an in-person watch party at the INDIs Film Festival 2023!

The comedy-horror YouTube sensation is now a fully-fledged TV show, with more musical numbers and existential dread than ever. We'll be screening an in-person watch party marathon of the entire first series from Channel 4! 

This screening will be BYOP (Bring Your Own Puppet) and cosplay is encouraged, with prizes going to the best costume and the best puppet! 

AND as an added bonus we will be holding a drop in Puppet Workshop hosted by Leeds based performance artist, comic and puppeteer Freddie Hayes, so everyone can make a fun little friend to take home with you after the screening. 

The workshop will take place as a drop in session in the Pyramid Bar, adjacent to the screening room from 2:30pm - 3:30pm. We advise people arrive no later than 2:30pm if they want to participate in the workshop.  
We'll supply materials but feel free to bring in anything from home you want to turn into a puppet!

So come join Red Guy, Yellow Guy, and Duck as they learn everything there is to know with the help of some friendly talking objects in their brand new Channel 4 show.
