Traditional entertainment at its best! Prof. Welsh suits his shows to the sort of audiences he is entertaining. For the pre-schools there are no sticks, no baby-throwing, no hangman and a very tame crocodile.
More robust events - open air with lots of adults around - are much more traditional. As Prof. Welsh, Frank brought 'Ol Red Nose' to holiday makers on British beaches for several years.
Available for parties, schools, and outdoor events - fetes, carnivals, family days. AND Clown Franki, magic, balloon-modelling and talks.
