Mr Punchís 353rd birthday will be celebrated with a party in Covent Garden near the spot where Samuel Pepys recorded his first sighting of Mr Punch in May 1662. A plaque commemorating this momentous occasion is situated on the portico wall of the Inigo Jones church of St Paulís.
Punch and Judy Professors and Puppeteers from all over the country will be coming to perform throughout the day. We invite everyone to come and enjoy the shows and celebrate the art of puppetry.
