Be a master of puppets.
Pull some strings to get to the 2015 World Puppet Festival in France. The 18th biennial event is in Charleville-Mezieres in the Champagne-Ardenne region from September 18-27.
It attracts around 150,000 spectators, and up to 250 performing companies from 25 countries will put on shows at more than 40 venues across the town.
The French Ardennes tourist board has created a special package for the festival costing from PS95 per person based on two people sharing and including one night's B&B at a three-star hotel, dinner at a local restaurant, two puppets shows, and an official programme. Travel is not included.
