Ella is a bright and talented performer! Her puppets are quite clever.
Amazing puppet show - truly ingenious and original - really captured the children's attention. This was for our Girls' Brigade company and Ella then took a workshop looking at how we communication with movement and actions. The girls used large puppets collaboratively - a super lesson session.

Recently attended a children's puppet party where Ella introduced us to her fairies and their friends. Ella and friends interacted with the children, capturing their imagination. After the show the kiddies had a nice wee snack and then made their own wee puppets. A fantastic "different" day out in a wee hidden lane in the west end. �. Good luck Ella for the future of your business. More...
We had Ella come to do her puppet show for my daughter's 6th birthday party. My daughter and her friends really enjoyed it and had plenty of giggles throughout the show. Ella then told the girls a bit about the different kinds of puppets, letting them come up to have a good look at them and to help move them. She was great at getting the girls involved and they couldn't wait to get their turn for a try. Afterwards, the girls were able to make their own puppets, using a good range of craft materials. Ella was on hand to help the girls get their puppets just as they wanted. It is a perfect activity for kids who enjoy making things. Thanks Ella for making our party! More...
Nudge puppets came along to my son's party today. All our guests, both kids and adults, were delighted by the performance! The kids loved Ella, her enchanting puppets & the interactive part of the show. They were all thrilled to make their own puppet that they could name and take home with them. Loved seeing my kids faces light up and hearing them giggle. Thanks Ella. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a little magic in their kids party. More...
Ella came to our school today with her puppets. She performed a puppet show and spoke to the children about the different puppets she works with. She was amazing and the children were totally captivated by the experience. Afterwards she ran a workshop for the children and taught them how to make their own puppets. The workshop was fully resourced and all the children were able to independently create their own moving road puppet. She set up safety mirrors at the end so the children could watch their own puppets perform. Thank you Ella for bringing your enchanting puppets to our school. More...
Today Ella performed her puppet show for my son’s 6th birthday. It was so magical and mesmerising, my son and his friends loved it (all the parents did too). They also enjoyed learning how to move the puppets themselves and making their own puppets. Ella was calm and kept 20 excited children entertained. I would definitely recommend Nudge Puppets. More...
I went to Ella’s show in Haddington this week with 4 kids of varying ages from 4-9 years. All of them loved it, as did both adults! The show was perfectly pitched for that age group and the length of the show was optimal for holding everyone’s attention. After the initial performance, Ella took time to explain to the children in great detail how each puppet worked and they were able to try them out for themselves. Finally the children were encouraged to create their own puppets in a well-resourced workshop. Ella’s puppets and set were absolutely beautiful and the show was captivating and very professionally executed. Would highly recommend. More...
