Le Peruchet information
Le Peruchet is one of several small private puppet theatres to survive in Brussels. It's aimed specifically at kids (as opposed to productions at Théâtre Royal de Toone) in the two-to-eight age group. Occupying an old whitewashed stone farmhouse in the middle of modern Ixelles, the theatre is totally at odds with all around it, making it one of those Brussels experiences you won't forget.
Go through thick curtains to discover a world of fables and fairytales, and an adjoining museum chock full of colourful characters. All productions are in French, but the set up is unique enough for kids of any language to enjoy.
