Sunday 12 May 2024 – Shows throughout the day 12:30 – 17:30
Come to see a Punch & Judy like none you have seen before! Spike “Bones” Lidington will premiere his show at the 49th annual Covent Garden May Fayre and Puppet Festival. Watch Ms Judy take centre stage as she navigates Mr Punch’s shenanigans, police harassment and questions their 360-year relationship. Giggle along as the Devil and their right-hand Croc (Dorothy) try to take Mr Punch and Ms Judy down to hell, but they are thwarted in the end, leaving everything fine beside the seaside.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 101020076 and the University of Exeter’s Public Engagement with Research fund. It is being implemented at the University of Exeter in the Department of Drama.
