To this end, we try to meet our responsibilities in all our activities and have a variety of elements in place to assist us in ensuring that we continue to meet these standards. We try to operate to standards of best practice on a variety of fronts and have developed a range of policies to guide us in this regard.
Public Liability Insurance:
The Moon & Sixpence Puppet Theatre holds current public liability insurance cover to the value of €6.5 million to meet our indoor and outdoor performances across the island of Ireland. A copy of this insurance policy is available on request.
The Moon & Sixpence Puppet Theatre is committed to working in accordance with the provisions of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and other associated legislation. The theatre has developed a comprehensive safety statement, in line with our obligations, and is regularly reviewed and updated as the need arises. A copy of this safety statement is available on request.
Child Protection Policy:
The Moon & Sixpence Puppet Theatre is committed to a child-centred approach to our work with children and young people. The welfare of any child or young person who is taking part in, or observing, a workshop or performance, is paramount. We undertake to provide a safe environment and experience, where the welfare of the child / young person is paramount. We adhere to the recommendations of Children First: National Guidelines for the Protection and Welfare of Children, published by the Department of Health and Children. A copy of our Child Protection Policy is available on request, as are Garda Vetting Certificates for each of our puppeteers.
Taxation & Statutory Obligations:
Ireland’s travelling marionette theatre is tax compliant, including registration for, and returns of, income tax and VAT. A tax clearance certificate is available where necessary.
