The Punch and Judy Fellowship is pledged to ensuring that its members are not asked wrongly for DBS checks (formerly CRB).  A check may only be requested when the performer is engaged in a ‘regulated activity’ as officially defined. This definition is centred on frequent and intensive contact with the same children in the same place by someone who is employed in a supervising capacity.  DBS checks are not relevant to booking a Punch and Judy performance. This includes visits to schools. Requesting a check when not required is a breach of current legislation.  More info



Membership Status
 A ‘Full Member’ is a performer whose show has been carefully assessed and is considered by the committee of the Punch and Judy Fellowship to be providing a performance that offers ‘a basic level of proficiency’ or above.
Assessment criteria include the ability to speak with the authentic voice of Mr Punch (the swazzle), overall appearance and entertainment value.
The information in this directory is to assist you. The Punch and Judy Fellowship does not accept any responsibility for the work of artists and suggests that you take up references before entering into any contract.

My name is Mr Punch.  I’ve known Jon for forty odd years 'Man & Boy.'  He is a second generation Punch & Judy Man and has performed, with my good self, in many varied venues across Europe and the UK.
We bring our show to all ages, including a 'street show', which we have performed for Lords & Ladies at London’s Claridges to a 60th Birthday party and many other diverse venues in between.
So, if its ENTERTAINMENT you require give us a call, if Jon’s not around ask for me, I'm the good looking one with the biggest nose!
