Although I hate Punch and Judy shows I appreciate the fact that children love them. This one is definitely one of the best (even made me smile!)

I'm sorry, we don't at the moment, you can catch lots of clip that audience members have uploaded to YouTube though.

The show is usually on from Easter to September at weekends and school holidays, times are normally 2pm & 4pm and if the weather is great and the prom is busy a 12 noon show is added!
