The Lambert Puppet Theatre was established in 1972.

Eugene Lambert founder and Director of The Lambert Puppet Theatre had an interest in puppetry from a very early age, making his own ventriloquist dummy Frankie, which later developed into Finnegan the ventriloquist act.
In the early years with Finnegan, Eugene toured the UK and Ireland extensively and, in later years, he promoted Ireland for Irish Tourist Board, touring the USA, Japan and Australia.

Lambert Theatre Sign 1In Ireland, Eugene and his wife Mai had a large family comprising ten children. Rearing the ten children took a lot of work. Eugene supplemented his day job as refrigeration engineer with his “Punch and Judy Show” appearing in private houses and night time was taken up with appearing with his vent act Finnegan at gala concerts and dinners

The Lambert family participated in Jury’s Irish Cabaret for 7 years bringing topical puppet acts to the American audience.

Eugene and his wife Mai visited The Harlequin Puppet Theatre in Colwyn Bay and an International Puppet Festival in Prague, inspired by what they saw they decided to open a puppet theatre of there own, The Lambert Puppet Theatre.
