Punch & Judy are coming to Street Market

A staple of Street Market’s for many years, we’ve always tried to have a Punch & Judy show on the Little Rec. This year we’re welcoming Professor Gary Wilson, who promises a traditional show which looks just the ticket for our theme.


On that note, did you know that Punch & Judy was historically more for adults than children? It wasn’t until the late Victorian period that it became more of a children’s show, popping up on beaches across Britain, where by the 1920s it was a common site up and down the country.
