All About Us

glyn-edwards-punch-and-judy

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.

 

NO MORE SEAFRONT SHOWS TIL NEXT SUMMER SEASON


In 2018 you'll find us back again outside the new West Pier Centre at the foot of the i360


The Centre is where Punch & Judy also host schools visits to explore seaside heritage. 



Meanwhile don't forget you can book Mr. Punch
for your public event

He also makes visits to schools with a special 'Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside' session.
