Since 2004, the biennial Copenhagen Puppet Festival has been bringing puppeteers, enthusiasts and newcomers together to participate to a full program of performances, seminars and workshops held by leading professionals.

This year the square around Kødbyens Food & Market will host The Horsemen, three entertaining mad Frenchmen on horseback, after which two uniquely decorated turntables will be auctioned off.

All the proceeds of the Copenhagen Puppet Festival go towards supporting the shelter Istedgade 100 and the social enterprise Street Voices. (AP)
