Parties and Celebrations
An hour's entertainment

A good balance for most parties is to have a mixture of entertainments.

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 to round things off. Something special for the birthday child and a model for all the children to take home.

Where I have worked
Much of my work now comes from repeat bookings and personal recommendations. Below are some of my regular appearances.


Birthday parties, Christmas parties.

Outdoor events

Summer fetes, festivals, street fayres and carnivals, craft fayres, racecourses, agricultural shows, parks and zoos, and of course the beach.


Shops, shopping centres, corporate entertainment, tourist attractions, grand openings and product launches.


Schools, nurseries, playgroups and drama groups, talks to colleges, Women's Institutes and other adult groups.


You can book a talk for your group.

For schools etc, a look at the puppets and the booth, a talk about the show and how it all works aimed at the age group of the children and finally a show.
Particularly appropriate for topics of The Seaside and Victorians

For adult groups, a light hearted look at Punch & Judy through the years, finishing with a show

Outdoor Work
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.

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 bring some magic, balloon modelling or both.

I am a member of Equity and a member of the British Puppet and Model Theatre Guild.
