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.
This year’s May Fayre took place on 10 May 2015 at St Paul’s Church, Bedford Street, Covent Garden, London WC2. The day began with a Grand Procession at 11am led by the Superior Brass Band, followed by a Special Church Service at 12noon, and performances until 5.30pm. We hope all who participated enjoyed the day!
