Addrian performs a traditional Punch and Judy show where the violence excalates with the age of the audience i.e. 4 year olds have a tame run-around and 11 year olds get the full bloody mayhem. Addrians characters include: the Baby, the Beadle, the Ghost, the Devil, Toby the Dog and the Crocodile. For special occasions Jack Ketch the Hangman.
TRADITIONAL PUNCH AND JUDY.
Magic: Addrian performs a choice of childrens magical tricks.
Bubbles: Always a favourite, Addrian links bubbles together until he blows cubic ones.
Balloon Modelling: Everything except frogs! He can't do frogs. But every child always gets a balloon and even if they go bang has one when he leaves.
Juggling: The only man in England to juggle 75 balloons at the same time, plus the usual clubs, balls, rings, eggs.

Special for Birthdays
