SUMMER SEASONS 'BOX FRESH' PUNCH!

Mark Poulton at Weymouth Beach

 

May to early September

 

Show times are at 12 noon and 2.00pm (Sometimes during the school holidays I try to do a 3.30 show too - but this is optional)

 

Thirty minutes of LIVE entertainment and the cost is still only £1 for adults & children.

 

Times may vary from day to day, so please check the time board on the day or please feel free to phone me to check times if you are make a special trip to catch a show - 07974 732352. All shows are weather & people permitting. (Weather permitting includes the WIND!) CLOSED ON FRIDAYS

Richard Coombs at The Heights of Abraham

 

July to Sept

 

Mr Punch at 'sea level' is what you naturally expect on a beach , but for a show with its head in the clouds you can try Richards high altitude show in Derbyshire's Peak District.

 

There is a fee to visit this picturesque Hilltop Park , as first you will have to ride the famous Cable Car to get there. But in the Summer this fee includes two guided tours of the Victorian lead mine 'Caverns' and of course the Punch and Judy show.

 

2016 will be Richards eleventh consecutive Summer performing up at Heights, and to celebrate the show will include the longest crocodile to be found anywhere in the UK , and quite possibly the world.

 

Shows every day at 11.30, 1.30 & 3.30pm.
