This just has to be a must experience , not just for the children but the older family members too, so rare are these traditional family entertainers these days and one to remember for years to come. Its free and donations are at your discretion, the children love joining in.

What a treat - traditional Punch and Judy on a sunny prom. Good to see the P & J themed gift stall added to give this puppetry treasure a new lease of life. Long live the Codmans - that's the way to do it!

We stumbled upon this traditional Punch and Judy show and sat down with our 2 children and our chips to watch. Big crowds and a lovely atmosphere. Lovely lady subtly collecting donations which fund the shows, well worth few quid for half hour of fun. Only point to mention, the show is traditional and features the hangman and the devil which I was a bit surprised about at first. As a teacher, I wondered if the show would be allowed in many schools these days as it's just not very PC. As a fun loving British holiday maker, I think if it was good enough for my grandparents, it's good enough for my kids...
Well done, we loved the show and you should be rewarded for upholding the traditional story in these days of PC and all that poppycock.
