Next year's major event will be Alternative Arts Puppet Festival known as the May Fayre. This event is held in St. Paul's Churchyard (This church, St. Paul's, Covent Garden has long connections with Punch & Judy)
The May Fayre is always held on the second Sunday in May (on or near the date of Punch's birthday). We celebrate Punch's birthday on May 9th since Samuel Pepys first saw Mr Punch in England on 9 May 1662 and recorded the fact in his diary.
