All About Us

My mum and dad were variety performers. My dad later produced pantomimes and seaside summer shows. I’ve produced TV shows and events myself as well as being a ‘Prof’.

I married Mary - niece of the celebrated puppeteer John Wright who founded London’s Little Angel Theatre. Mary has spent a lifetime as a professional puppeteer/puppet maker for theatre, television and film.

Our daughter Katey is a Punch Prof and third generation puppeteer. Her daughter Roisin is a keen fan of Mr. Punch and may yet be the fourth generation in a family tradition.

We have a family history – too – of promoting the Punch and Judy tradition itself. From Mr. Punch’s 300th birthday in 1962 to his recent 350th in 2012 and onwards we’ve been proud to be ambassadors for this great British tradition and to have organised many of its major events.

 

BACK TO SCHOOL FOR MR. PUNCH


After 100 performances on the seafront between May and September 2018 Punch & Judy are now busy taking their antics on tour to all manner of festivals and fun days and to schools.

Mr. Punch knows all about the Victorians, seaside holidays past and present and toys and games.

Here's what one Head Teacher said:

Thank you for an incredibly engaging and educational session. Our Year 2 children were completely enthralled by the show and loved the puppet handling session and talk. Children and staff laughed and learnt a lot and the follow up writing by the pupils showed how much they'd taken in. We would highly recommend!
