An hour's entertainment
Parties & Celebrations
I offer an hour's package that starts off with some children's magic to get things warmed up. The birthday child can be invited to help. Next, a Punch & Judy show - family entertainment at its best - a bright show, action packed and full of fun. After the show children can meet Mr Punch or feed the crocodile!
Finally, some balloon modelling. Something special for the birthday child and a model for all the children to take home.
Have-a-go workshops for children from 5 - 11 are particularly suitable for schools.
I have a large variety of quality puppets - hand puppets, marionettes, muppet style puppets, shadow puppets and others from around the world. The children are given the opportunity to operate all of these types of puppets and are finally guided towards putting on their own puppet shows in small groups.
The workshops cover many of the National Curriculum learning objectives for Speaking and Listening.
They can fit in with school topics of:
Toys old and new
Dark and light
Myths and Legends
I have been bringing Punch & Judy shows to all sorts of events for many years. From the smallest village fete to the largest festivals, a Punch & Judy show is a delight to see.
Events and Promotions
I can schedule shows throughout the afternoon or day to suit your particular event. I display the times of shows when known. If preferred, I can simply perform as and when seems appropriate.
Mix and mingle
If walkabout entertainment is what you need then I can also bring some magic, balloon modelling or both.
I am not taking on any carving commissions at the moment due to other commitments.
I am a full member of Equity and a member of the British Puppet and Model Theatre Guild.
