Nilima 03 Aug 2020 Jonathan was great with kids, along with his magical tricks he also brought in loads of energy and fun! My 5 year old girl and her friends thoroughly enjoyed the show and wanted more! Thank you Nilima

Dee 21 Jul 2020 Johnathan is a true professional, it was my 60th birthday party and he went down a storm. We all thought he was superb, loved the potted history of Punch and Judy. Also loved our balloon hats. We would certainly book him again.

TamaraB-9 03 Mar 2019 Jonathon came and performed at our house for an hour and a half for my mother’s birthday. He showed us how to build puppets with materials around us and other little objects we could use as puppets. Then he performed a spectacular Punch and Judy show inside his lovely booth he had brought with him. He ended with some wonderful magic. The whole afternoon was a delight, sheer joy from start to finish. We laughed our heads off and had so much fun!! Jonathan is a superb performer; so so skilled, extremely funny, charismatic and just becomes the puppets he is impersonating. He’s a natural performer ....born to do this. He lights up the room!! I would hire him for any event, any party, any anything!!!!
