My Experience
20 years as a professional entertainer, including: 7 years resident Punch and Judy man on British beaches, corporate and private events, and bringing fun to adults and children with disabilities. Punch and Judy with an audience of monoglot Chinese children was a stretch, as was a Riding for the Disabled event when after a few minutes it became clear that most of the audience were profoundly deaf, and Punch's swazzle was being interpreted in BSL. Everyone seemed happy, though.

Schools Programmes
As a qualified teacher and lecturer, I have very much enjoyed taking my puppet show and workshops into schools and colleges, whether for end-of-term or Christmas-themed fun shows, or something where a bit of social history was threaded through - museum and arts centres have often booked me with that sort of thing in mind

Outdoor Work
Happy to do just P&J at intervals, or combine it with walkabout puppets/clowning/magic. No set-piece, static magic outdoors, though.

Special for Birthdays
Packages to suit the time and the purse - from half an hour to a 2 hour spread. Magic production of special presents for birthday child. Punch, Magic, games (everyone gets a prize, which I provide) and clowning.
