Welcome to Debrecen!


Season closing at the Vojtina Puppet Theater

The pandemic “forced” the Vojtina Puppet Theater to hold its programs in the online space, however, their traditional season-closing programs held at the beginning of the summer will still be held in real life, outdoors. On June 13th, the puppeteers are will be waiting for families with small children for a season-closing event in the usual place, in the Memorial Garden behind the Reformed Great Church.

The event is entitled “Here Is The End, Begin”. The name of the event expresses the duality that, as a result of the pandemic, the puppet theater can close a shortened season and at the same time open its line of summer games. This time too, there will be clowns, jugglers, stilts, puppeteers, and of course lots and lots of games and music.

It’s over here, start! Season closing day on June 13th, Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., awaits families with the following programs.

10.00 – 10.15     
Everything is better seen from Stilt! – introduction of stilt apprentices

10.15 – 11.00
