Presented by the acclaimed String Bean Puppets, Paddy the Wanderer tells the story of Wellington’s most adventurous canine.

Paddy the Wanderer became a waterfront identity in Wellington in the 1930s. The cuddly and lovable ginger brown Airedale terrier started life as Dash, the pet of a young girl whose father worked on the waterfront.

As his fame grew, Paddy became a Wellington icon and was loved and cared for by the watersiders and harbour board workers, seamen and taxi drivers. Taxi drivers took him for rides all over the city, and up country as well, and he made sea voyages to New Zealand’s coastal ports and Australia.

String Bean Puppets are a Wellington puppet company dedicated to share the wonder and magic of puppetry. Using Wellington’s beloved canine as their subject – this is sure to please kids of all ages.
