Hire the real deal from Brighton seafront. Often imitated but never equalled.  Recently featured on ‘Sea Cities’ (BBC TV) and ‘Michael Portillo’s Hidden Histories' (C5).

'I settled down to watch world-renowned Prof. Glyn Edwards show  with a group of excited kids aged 2 to 12, and their parents. And I loved every minute.' (Daily Mirror)

'Wonderful. Everything I remember as a child but totally in tune for today.' (Parent )

We can also provide additional supporting novelties including the old fashioned marionettes of Boneshaker Brothers Skeleton Circus, have-a-go plate spinning sessions and Big Bubbles.

We're delighted to have performed our Brighton Beach Punch and Judy Show in just about every kind of location from National Trust properties, the V&A, Carnaby St., Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, the British Embassy in Moscow, Lichfield Cathedral Mediaeval Fair, Virgin Atlantic staff fun day, Historic Gloucester Docks, Cadbury World, Marks & Spencers, Bristol Zoo Gardens, Dickens and Jones, Eastnor Castle, Midlands Arts Centre, Walsall illluminations, Aberystywyth Punch & Judy Festival, Naples Villa Communale, Houston Festival Texas, Wilkinsons Fun Fair, Dubai Yacht Club and - of course - on world famous Brighton beach itself.

Our seaside history sessions for schools are held regularly at the West Pier Centre on the seafront or can visit your school.

Our children (and myself!) learnt so much and adored the Punch and Judy show.’ (Class Teacher: Lancing College Prep)

We trained the V&A Museum of Childhood staff for their Punch and Judy module and bring the same quality to you.

Visit us at Brighton's West Pier Centre or book a visit from us to you.

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! (Deputy Head: 2018)

We can also deliver custom sessions for KS 3 and upwards as well as giving talks and demonstrations for adult groups.
