Great day yesterday at the May Fayre although the weather was a bit chilly to say the least. Good to see so many friendly performers there! Here are some photos on Flickr of the day.

Yes, a good day all round and the usual bumper set of pictures from Dan. Thanks.
I didn't get a list of all those performing this year although there are more Punch men than ever - now that there are two lawns on the go for the Montagues and Capulets. I didn't see any non-Punch performers this year - usually there is at least one marionette show, and perhaps a Pulcinella or a Petruska, but not this year. There were a couple of Punch shows in name only!

Really good photos. As they say in the online world WIWT
And that Punch Chris is holding looks like a masterpiece I must say. Makes me think of the awful amount of time you spend at haberdasheries when you make puppets.
I do hope someone filmed Pete Maggs' entire show for the records.

Yes it is a lovely puppet - and the more remarkable because it is his very first effort. Beautifully carved and painted and costumed. I liked its expression - and it handled very well. As David said, if that's his first what's he going to be like with a bit of practice?
There was another lovely puppet made a first appearance, a portrait puppet of Smoky the Clown commissioned by David and beautifully carved by Geoff. You will find it among Dan's pictures.
