TRADITIONAL with a twist of MODERN
Punch and Judy has been a staple of British Entertainment for well over 300 years.
Such longevity has been achieved ,in part, by its ability to present a face that is both time loved and 'Traditional'
- but also 'Topical' and Entertaining for Today.
Richards Show captures this. And that is why he find his Show goes down well with ALL age groups.
Parents and Grandparents will have their childhood memories of 'Shows by the Seaside' re-kindled ,
whilst todays television-generation of children will also be enthralled by the fast pace and colourful puppets.
As popular today as it ever was , a Punch and Judy Show is a welcome site , that can liven up any Event: Birthday Parties and Summer Fetes, Shopping Centres, Puppet Festivals, Corporate Events, Schools, Ex-Sercivemens celebrations and Weddings... . Next Show - Your Place ?
A GENEROUS HELPING of FUN for ANY EVENT
On size doesn't always fit all.
Suits you Sir ?
So Richard has several Punch Theatres for different locations:
A shorter Booth for indoors , where ceiling heights can be low.
Two sizes of outdoor Theatres, with guy-ropes and bunting. If you are planning an outdoor event ,it is always best to have a 'Plan B' for bad weather. (Strong wind and rain is no Fun for anyone)
There is also a seperate theatre which packs down very compactly for Airplane travel for overseas Festivals and Event work.
All versions are totaly self contained , as the sound systems are battery operated.
Richard built his first Punch Show aged 11.
A FULL TIME PUPPETEER
He was performing at Birthday Parties and Fetes all through his teens and college years .(He is now 43, and still has all his own teeth!)
3 years at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School has led to over 20 years as a puppeteer in Film and Television.
He now enjoys performing Muppets or Animatronics one day , Mr Punch the next .
Variety is the Spice of Life!
