Richard Coombs at The Heights of Abraham

July to Sept 2019

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.   TBC
