The Punch and Judy Club was founded by some of the world’s top Punch and Judy Professors, historians, and puppet makers all keen to 'Stick Up for Mr Punch'. They aim to promote Old Red Nose and his merry band of wooden headed misfits in the best possible light by performing shows of the highest quality. As "Custodians of Mr Punch's Heritage" these performers know that Mr Punch’s future is quite literally in their hands.
With Covent Garden May Fayre and Puppet Festival sadly cancelled, and Mr Punch and his friends on lock down across the world, we wanted to find a way to celebrate Mr Punch's 358th birthday in style.
Alongside Alternative Arts and ThePunch and Judy Facebook page we are launching May Fayre Memories, celebrating this unique event, and the people and puppets that have found a home there.
