Profile Information

Barnoldswick, Lanchashire, England
About Me:
I have been working as a children's entertainer for over 25 year as Ron Rainbow, using magic and puppets. Although my interest in both magic and puppets stems back to my childhood . I write most of my own material and build a lot of my own puppets but I also use 'off the shelf' puppets as well. I love working with children and in the open air. I work in UK and Eastern Europe.
I am a member of Equity, British Puppet and Model Theatre Guild, International Brotherhood of Magicians. I am Director of the Bi-annual Skipton Puppet Festival
The 2nd International Skipton Puppet Festival was a huge success, with over 20 puppet companies taking part, including 7 international companies, with 24 ticketed performance, 14 school performances plus free street and tent events and puppet making workshops. 7 of the 24 of the ticketed performances where sold out in advance of the festival starting, over the festival 16 performances sold out. Some repeat performances were arranged some of which also sold out. The free events where overwhelmed with people coming from far and wide. The phone lines where so busy that we had to trurn them off in order to cope with the punters who had turned up. We advise BOOK EARLY next time. If you would like to be added to our data base and receive information of the 2009 International Skipton Puppet Festival please email me with your details. I wil lbe adding some photo's of the even shortly.
