The PJF’s three day festival  - Mr. Punch and Friends - was held in the historic city of Lincoln under the expert guidance of committee members Prof John Thursby and Prof Clive Chandler. It was funded with money from Lincoln BIG (Business Improvement Group) topped up by a sum from the PJF coffers (inc a sum from The Big Grin) plus money from Lincoln Castle. Clive then made a PJF application to Arts Council England to double the budget. This proved successful and allowed the PJF to mount a substantial event.
