Thank you for adding me to the forum. I am based in Ceredigion and am just starting up with puppets. I don't have any Punch and Judy at the moment but will be going to get some in the future. I have rod puppets and 3 willing helpers who I shall put through a training day with UK ministry oneway who are doing training in Stoke on Trent this November. I am also going to build a puppet theatre on the back of a cycle trailer or tricycle, not sure which yet as soon as my part time cycle instructor work finishes this month as I cover the primary school's in the county( i am also a cycle mechanic). The idea has been formulating for many years since doing outside events such as Glastonbury and others with bicycles ( bmx with sidecars and other stuff) but my son has taken that on as i get older and body protest's against heavy stuff. I also do peg loom weaving workshops with sheep fleece but now is the time to move forward with puppets. I shall most likely be asking questions in the near future so will catch up later. Milly

Well I have spent some time looking at the website and I must say it is a wonderful resource of information and inspiration. I have learnt some new things already and can see some of my ideas would have taken me on a fruitless path.
Many thanks to all those that contribute. :D

Bore da Milly, croeso.
While you are very welcome here, I wonder if you might not find more useful contacts on the Puppet Guild website, http://www.puppetguild.org.uk where the members tend to cover all manner of puppetry. We on this site, while interested in puppetry generally, tend to specialise in Punch & Judy which we consider a very distinct form of puppetry.
As far as One Way puppetry - are you interested specifically in evangelical puppetry? If not I should point out that this is a very specific form of puppetry, and this is a commercial venture dedicated to selling training and puppets and equipment for that particular end. This is no way a criticism.

Thanks for your reply Chris,
I have browsed the puppet guild briefly and will look when time permits.I am not expecting to go into to evangelical puppetry. Oneway is just a good grounding for the new comers to see what its about and at £15 each for the days training I think thats not a bad price and if at the end of it someone drops out because its not for them saves me a lot of hassle. :D
The Punch and Judy will be my own thing which I will run myself.

Almost Down Your Way, but a bit above...

In a month's time, Saturday, November 28th, bit north of you as part of Beaumaris' Victorian Day celebrations, at Beaumaris Castle, we, Properpunch are back inside the Castle presenting three shows, say hello if you get along.

Beaumaris always has a great atmosphere on the day, with street stalls etc, lovely place.
As if I haven't got enough to do today, with all I've got to do today.

Yes, but what a bind getting the gear into the castle! I'm at Beaumaris Christmas Eve - but thankfully not in the castle.
I think Milly is in Mid-Wales isn't she? Quite a trek to Anglesey for her. Not for me of course - but I'm doing Llangollen's Christmas Festival on that day. And I've just today turned down Abersoch who are also having their Christmas Festival on that day. Annoying.

Oops Ah.
I had better shed some light on my name as I am male :D
I got called Milly at the age of 5 as I liked Milly Molly Many story books at school. It stuck with me ever since even when I lived in Europe,Russia and the Ukraine.I am now 59 and kids I teach cycle training at schools still call me it because there parents know me by that name :)
Sorry about that.

Sorry about that. I can understand how the school nickname came about and how it stuck. I am less clear why you would choose it as a username on a forum since it would be bound to give a wrong impression. I suppose cycle mechanic should have been a clue - except that's my sexist thinking showing. Not that gender matters as far as puppetry is concerned.
