“Great traditional culture of Lyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I visit there with my friend who is working there as a Guignol master. He showed me the back of stage. There are so many different type of Guignol such as Santa, King, Sushi shef, and so on. their clothes were delicately made with sewing machine. The face is also very unique. I had no time to see the show but one day I want to come back to see them.

“French punch and judy puppets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you don't have French speaking children, I do not think this would be appropriate. It was great for our 5 kids as they grew up in Lyon.

Closed. We asked for guignol shows but found them closed.
Other theaters un town are open.
This place sounded fun but seems closed for long.

“Fun for the children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We spent a sunday afternoon at Theatre du Guignol de Lyon. The kids really enjoyed the 1 hour show and we got to go back stage to see all the puppets after the show. We bought tickets in Old Town the morning of the show, at one of the Guignol stores. We showed up 30 minutes early and got good seats.

“Zonzons guignol wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Tickets can be booked in advance either directly or through Fnac. Would recommend getting there 15 minutes before start of show to get good seats. Don't sit too close to stage or difficult for kids to see everything on stage. Recommend 5-9th rows. Great little theatre.
