We went to see the free puppet theatre in the Winter Gardens yesterday. The story was Sleeping Beauty, kids loved the rose princess, my husband thought I was a bit meh, and I found it entertaining to look at the different solutions for the requisites for the play.
After the show, we stayed to eat the food we packed along, watched the fish and plants and the rope acrobat that happened to be there too. Outside our kids did their own tricks in the tree. A nice way to spend the grey morning with friends, even though we may have enjoyed the more traditional free puppet theatre in Copenhagen more last summer!
The puppet theatre is on at 10am on summer Tuesdays. The show is inside when it rains and outside in the rose gardens when the weather permits. The theatre company can be found on sytkyt.fi and I’ve blogged about the winter gardens more here.

Reblogged this on Free But Fun! and commented:
The puppet shows are on again with different summer stories from July 7th till August 4th always on Tuesdays at 10am and at noon. Take your own picnic blanket to sit on and you may also want to spare some time to take a look the puppet exhibition presenting puppets used during the last 30 years between all the plants. I haven’t been there yet but will try to make it one Tuesday!
I’m just now catching up and adding your blog back to my reader after the break. So many fun things to do in Finland! Maybe we can get up there before we head out of Europe.
I think I’ll have my grandchildren in Helsinki. There’s an awful lot of stuff for young kids to do there.
Haha, you can always just visit us too 🙂
It sounds like there’s too much for a visit!
I believe a tourist visa can be issued for 12 months… 😉
How cool! I wish there was more like this in Phuket… although I think it would be too hot to have outdoors most days. 🙂
Haha, opposite problems 🙂 lucky there are air cons!
This sounds good. I didn’t know about it. Thanks for the hint!
Happy to spread the good news!
