That’s The Way To Do It

We’re in two minds about Punch and Judy shows. Some kids delight in them, and laugh their little heads off at the cackling, long-nosed fellow and his long-suffering wife. Others scream in terror at the first creepy sound of Mr P’s squeaky voice. Find out which camp your nippers are in this Sunday at the annual Covent Garden Puppet festival this Sunday. Centred around St Paul’s church, there will be stacks of puppet booths competing for your attention, brass bands, and a church service conducted by Mr Punch (which sounds frankly terrifying). There will also be live music, puppet workshops, and May Fair gubbins including Maypole dancing, juggling and clowns. Sunday. Free. From 10.30am.  More here
