That's the way to do it! Punch and Judy through the ages

Mr Punch made his first recorded appearance over 350 years ago in London’s Covent Garden, on 9 May 1662 - now regarded as the birthday of the country’s most notorious puppet.

This vibrant exhibition tells the story of the malevolent marionnette through the ages, from a stringed comedian who might say outrageous things, to a more aggressive glove puppet who could do outrageous things - mostly to other characters. It celebrates seaside holidays with puppet shows on beaches up and down the country, including Aberdeen, and explores Mr Punch’s meaning in the 21st century.
