Robert Poulter’s Model Theatre – The Turbot’s Tale

Robert Poulter and his Model Theatre return to the Ramsgate Festival with a tale of a Turbot from seabed to dinner table – illustrating the Victorian fishing industry in its hey day.

With New Model Theatre, Robert Poulter has taken the traditional medium of toy theatre as a starting point and written and designed original productions which use movement, light and sound to create a new theatrical experience in miniature. Since 1980 his performances have taken place in many art galleries, museums and festivals, not only in the UK but also Germany, the USA, France and the Netherlands. Robert has also organised six major festivals of paper theatre, two juxtaposing live theatre with model theatre. He has also written, designed and directed three large open air spectacles and worked on numerous street theatre events. As a writer, illustrator and book designer, Mr. Poulter has a number of publications to his credit.

Part of the Ramsgate Treasures series of events.




Please help the Festival!

We are dependent on fundraising to make our full programme happen this year and every year. Please consider supporting us with a donation to help secure the Festival and its future. If everyone in Ramsgate were to give just one a pound, imagine what we could achieve for the town!

Find out how you can help, watch our fun Kickstarter video, featuring actress Brenda Blethyn and a host of other Ramsgate people and please share the link with everyone you can think of who may like to help!
