My Experience

Since watching Professor Higgins’ Punch and Judy show on Weymouth beach as a small child, I was hooked! I have been performing the show ever since I can remember, giving my first public performance at the age of eight. In 1999 I was awarded the title of ‘Britain’s Most Promising Young Professor’. In 2007 I was elected a member of the prestigious Punch and Judy College of Professors, the organisation for the country’s leading performers. I am also a full member of The Punch and Judy Fellowship, Puppeteers UK and Equity.

Over the last fifteen years or so, I have performed at all manner of events across the country, from the Channel Islands to Morecambe Bay. I have had the pleasure of performing at venues such as the Millennium Dome, Chelsea Physic Garden and at numerous puppet festivals in London’s Covent Garden. I have performed at various attractions and resorts in the South West, including the seaside town of Weston-super- Mare, where I was booked to entertain the holiday makers for seven summer seasons. Clients have included; 02, The National Trust and BMW as well as various town and city councils with many rebooking year after year.

I am also a professional, trained actor. As an actor I have performed in London’s West End and toured extensively to number one theatres throughout the UK and abroad. Click here for my acting CV.
