Christopher Somerville (Mr. Bimbamboozle) is North Wales' best loved and most experienced children's entertainer. His happy knack of winning the confidence of even the youngest children, his ability to make them laugh, and his gentle but firm control make him popular with kiddies and parents alike.

Any Day, Any Distance, Anywhere
Chris tailors his show to suit the occasion whether it be for a Holiday Camp, a tea party in the front room of a private house, a birthday in the local Community Centre, or an end of term treat in the School Hall.
He is experienced in a variety of settings, from promotional work in local stores (Asda, Mothercare, Pioneer etc.) to Punch & Judy shows on the seaside promenade, village fete and agricultural show.

The Secret

Whatever the venue, Chris quickly develops a rapport with his young audience and they rapidly become part of the show with their eager response, their laughter and their evident joy.
And what is his secret?
Experience of course, a sense of fun, enthusiasm and his own enjoyment. Chris says:

Special for Birthdays

Mr. Bimbamboozle is particularly in demand as a birthday party highlight. Whether in the home or local community hall Chris brings fun and laughter with magic and Punch & Judy.

These domestic shows are designed to involve the children in helping to make the magic. Of course the birthday boy or girl is made to feel very special, and are encouraged to assist in a magical feature. Chris is sensitive to the feelings of children and will not press an overly timid child, but it is surprising how even the normally shy ones warm to his encouragement and are eager to be involved.

Special for Schools
Chris has special workshop presentations for Schools : Punch and Judy at the Seaside; Punch and Judy, a Victorian Entertainment; A World of Puppets; Toys that Move.

Any Event

Indoor or Outdoors, a school fun day or village fete, a factory show or a wedding, Mr Bimbamboozle can add delight wherever there are children involved.
