This exhibition explores the story of Jan Bussell and Ann Hogarth, collectively known as The Hogarth Puppets.

The duo's most famous creation was Muffin the Mule and their shows appeared live on Saturday evenings during the 1930s from a caravan theatre outside the BBC headquarters.

During World War II, the London County Council commissioned The Hogarth Puppets to entertain children in London parks, and this part of their work continued well after the war. The Hogarth Puppets toured internationally with their string puppets regularly visiting Australia, Asia, the United States and Europe.
