More Information

Punch of course goes back many many years. He was first seen by Samuel Pepys in May of 1662 at Covent Garden in London.

He noted in his famous diary that he enjoyed the Italian performer performance. (Punch originated in Italy).

Since then Punch has been entertaining generations of children and adults alike, firstly in the town’s market place and then later in the Victorian era when the railways were built and townsfolk started to go to the seaside for holidays and day trips Mr Punch thought it would be a good idea to go as well. Punch has been associated with seaside ever since.

The Professor performs a traditional puppet show with all the usual characters including the policeman, baby and crocodile.

Places of performances include:

  • Childrens’ parties
  • Holiday Parks
  • Hotels
  • Local fetes and Events
  • Steam fairs
  • School Fairs
