About Scottish Mask And Puppet Centre

The Scottish Mask and Puppet Centre comprises a theatre (80 seats), museum and education unit. It houses an extensive mask & puppet library & archive, permanent exhibition areas, cafe, film & FX unit, mask studio, marionette carving workshop, various production and design workshops, stores and an office complex.

SMPC operates a regular family Saturday Show programme between September - June accompanied by workshop and birthday party events. Schools, community groups and voluntary organisations visit on weekdays by appointment or the Centre provides outreach services to such groups. The Centre also offers two major touring exhibitions for hire to museums & galleries in the UK and Ireland - "The Magic of Masks & Puppets" and "Behind The Mask". Craft commissions and advisory and consultancy services are also provided to theatres, film, television and the creative industries.

SMPC’s children and family programme aims to introduce you to touring companies both national & international, which includes aspects of glove, rod, marionette, shadow, table-top and black light theatre. We also promote performances, using mask, mime, storytelling, music, magic and entertainment. We endeavour to give birthday mentions to all children if informed in advance.

Birthday Parties at SMPC


Book a birthday party in conjunction with a performance (4yrs +) or book a birthday party puppet-making workshop for 5yrs+. We provide the party food, organise the show party games and give each child a party bag to take away. You just bring the cake.
