Welcome to Rafiki Crew Puppeteers

It all began in 2007….

When Karl and Tracey Goffe Established Rafiki’s Crew Puppeteers based on the East coast of Norfolk, they have over 15 years of experience of working with children & youth behind them. Now joined in leadership by their son Samuel as chief puppeteer! And associate members Daniel  ventriloquist genius.

Part of the vision was to provide a fun & enjoyable way of reaching into communities with the Gospel message.
