Puppet theatre barge needs £21,000 to stay open

The Barge is one of the last remaining marionette theatres in the country, a unique form of string puppetry.

While the boat is a regular sight for people on the Richmond Riverside during the summer, it now needs more than £21,000 to repair the ship's hull.
