PuppetShip Community Interest Company, is an exciting Social Enterprise for the North East of England.


PuppetShip Community Interest Company has been created by Puppeteer Alison McGowan and Boatbuilder / Designer Alex Finnegan with the aim of establishing a floating Puppet Theatre on the River Tyne.


Incorporated in January 2006, with a board of 6 Directors, funding is currently being raised to purchase and convert an ex-commercial Dutch Barge , into the PuppetShip, which will be moored on the Newcastle Quayside adjecent to the mouth of the Ouseburn Valley.


The vessel will take one year to convert into a 100 seat Puppet Theatre with an early 2008 opening.



Mission Statement


'To inspire and enrich the lives of children and families through the transforming power of performance and participation in creative activities.'



Community Interest Company Activities


Activity: General:


Create a live theatre venue aboard a boat to produce plays, educational workshops and encourage public participation in the arts, especially the art of puppetry in all its forms.


Our Vision:


PuppetShip represents a world of possibility at the water’s edge – a world of imagination, transformation, resourcefulness, empowerment, learning, and play.


Touring by boat, we hope to reach new audiences, offering new perspectives and access to creative opportunities for North East communities to engage with artists in their own riverside regeneration.
