Guignol! Guignol!” the children chant in unison, impatient to see their idol. Made of wood, the hero from Lyon and his friends are always ready to bring the house down during live shows full of mischief and inspired by well-known stories and tales. It is an opportunity for young audience to be amazed by the adventures of the most famous puppet in France and for parents to take an enjoyable trip down memory lane to their childhoods. The puppet has been in the Jardin d’Acclimatation of Paris since 1953 and his home is the capital’s most beautiful puppet theatre.

A puppet on a string, unlike any other – a good sign that the whole family will soon have a lot to laugh about. But shh! The show is about to begin…

Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday, public holidays and every day during school holidays, at 3pm and 4pm.
