What People Have Said

“My worries whether such a traditional kind of entertainment would cut the mustard with modern city kids at our school’s Summer Fair disappeared in minutes as I laughed along with a crowd of four to eighty-four year olds. The puppets are beautiful and the show captivating and hilarious, perfectly pitched to suit its audience who have raved about it ever since.”

Noemi Drew, Kentish Town School PTA

“I pass on to you the pride I felt when hearing parents talking about the quality and fun of your show and how captivating it was for the children. Also of parents sharing nostalgic ‘Punch & Judy’ anecdotes of when they were primary school children themselves. As an aside, more than a few commented on how ‘dashing’ you are too!”

“Parents are still stunned that you managed to captivate their children’s attention so completely, with many enjoying more than one performance. You certainly kept me smiling all afternoon.”

Anne Cartwright - Halstead Town Council

“Your contribution was undoubtedly one of the afternoon’s highlights. It was gratifying to witness the big attendance for your performances and we felt privileged to have the benefit of your expertise in this art.”

David Littaur, Friends of the Hampstead Garden Suburb

“I was almost weeping with hilarity at the impeccable comic timing, pun names and commentary. The audible delight of the surrounding youngsters added to my heightened state of puppet-induced mirth. It was the best ‘Punch & Judy’ show I have ever seen – by far. It reminded me that some very familiar, often simple things done very well are a great joy. I haven’t heard children shriek like that since I was under ten years old and shrieking. They were just emitting loud, appreciative noises as they were sometimes too young to express anything more than sheer delight and surprise.”

Rosie Cunningham - Artist, Illustrator, Photographer, Glasgow

“I just wanted to say thank you once again for bringing ‘Punch & Judy’ alive at our School Fair. As normal the kids were enthralled. We are a very diverse school from many different cultures and backgrounds so it was lovely for them to experience something that was uniquely British. Some of the Mums had never heard or seen it before and thought it brilliant.”
