The traditional tale of Punch and Judy is intrinsically linked with puppeteering – so it’s perhaps little surprise the CEP puppet show revolves so heavily around the use of these archaic characters. Enjoy your very own version of the classic tale, with expert puppeteers ready to put on a show you’ll remember forever.
Armed with his famous beating stick, Punch will take no prisoners as he pummels his way through the series of puppets who stand in his path. Don’t be alarmed though – as violent as it sounds on paper, the whimsical tone and playful nature of the show means it all becomes hilarious. Punch and his good lady wife are perfect for a number of events, including:
- Children’s birthday parties (kid-friendly show)
- Regular birthdays (a more adult version)
- Any outdoor event like a fete
This unique performance still has a place in modern culture, despite having its routes in 16th-century Italian storytelling – when Judy was known as Joan. Things haven’t changed a great deal regarding the narrative since then, with Punch even keeping the same basic costume.
If you’d like to experience the incredible and one-of-a-kind atmosphere of this pair, make sure to get in touch with the CEP crew. These wooden wonders are in high demand, so you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss out by booking them as soon as you can. We look forward to hearing from you.
