Puppeteers from around the world are expected to descend on Phuket in early November for the Phuket Harmony World Puppet Festival 2018.

Launched in 2013 by the Semathai Marionette Arts for Social Foundation, the Harmony World Puppet Festival is aimed at promoting puppeteering and helping people to express themselves while preserving their culture through marionette art. The five-day festival regularly attracts puppeteers from around the world, including productions from Europe, Asia and Africa.

The festival, now in its 5th year, has been held in various parts of Thailand including Samut Songkram, Bangkok, Rayong, Phuket and Kanchanaburi, giving it a strong regional presence. As well as preserving Thai culture, marionette art, and the art of puppetry, there is a focus on involving youth by giving them access to art and offering a way of expressing themselves.

Organised by Semathai Marionette Arts for Social Foundation and supported by the Thailand Exhibition and Convention Bureau (TCEB), Phuket Harmony World Puppet Festival 2018 will feature various outdoor stages and street shows, set against the island’s eclectic mix of Sino-Portuguese architecture and stunning natural beauty.

Performances will take place at Jungceylon, a popular shopping centre in the heart of Patong, on Thalang Road in Phuket Town, and on the beach in Patong. Performances will range from small, locally produced shows to large-scale productions in various genres. Performers will also have a chance to visit some of Phuket’s famous attractions and sights.

The Sponsorship Experts, Paul Poole (South East Asia) Co., Ltd. will be managing sponsorship and partnership marketing for Phuket Harmony World Puppet Festival 2018. We have a number of commercial sponsorship and partnership opportunities available for brands and businesses wanting to integrate with this high profile cultural event as well as many other opportunities to create bespoke events for your brand or business.
