Christmas Competition

We are delighted to announce our Christmas Competition in association with Benjamin Pollocks Toy Shop who have donated a beautiful Pollocks Neptune Theatre as the prize!

The British Puppet and Model Theatre Guild has always been a Toy Theatre organisation, in fact ‘puppet’ wasn’t added to our title until many years after its formation! To celebrate our Toy Theatre heritage we are launching a Christmas competition to design some Toy Theatre figures!


All you have to do is create, in whatever way or size you want, at least 3 Toy Theatre figures for a Christmas performance on a toy theatre stage. They could be for a classic theatre production, a pantomime, a book or even a Christmas film! Don’t worry if you can‘t draw, you can take photographs if you wish, or create them in 3D – any way you like! The prize will be awarded to the most creative entry in keeping with the Christmas theme.

Entries need to be emailed to by the closing date of Midnight on Sunday 13th Dec.


Entrants will be judged by the panel of Toy Theatre performers the following week and revealed across Social Media on Saturday 19th December.

Winners will receive a Pollocks Neptune Theatre and a year’s membership to The British Puppet and Model Theatre Guild.

We welcome entries from members and non-members of the Guild, and of all ages!

Good luck!
