punch and judyToo Much Punch?

I have not seen a Punch and Judy show for many years and from what I remember they were not very PC. I can only imagine things have changed a bit and they are now coming back into fashion with a more modern storyline. Marylebone Farmers Market will have more of a family vibe this weekend with a Punch and Judy show, mini play stalls and ice cream.

Theatre in a Garden Centre?

I’ve heard of some unusual fringe venues but this is new to me. The W6 Garden Centre will be presenting the Wind in the Willows performed by local theatre company Wild Ivy. Tickets are £7.50, include refreshments and need to be booked in advance. The show will be an interact retelling of a classic story and promises to be a great show for 5-11 year olds.
