Long term Circus Skills projects
Learning Circus Skills can provide incredible benefits to young people.
At Juggle Puppet we can work with you to create a project which lasts for several weeks at a time. You can book 1 half day per week and see children's confidence and skills grow as the weeks progress. By the end of the project students can perform a routine in front of their class or perhaps the school!

Punch and Judy School Workshop
Suitable for groups of up to 30 children (performance can include more).
Suitable for all ages
Great for English History topics!
Punch and Judy shows have been performed in the UK for over 350 years!
This workshop starts with a Punch and Judy performance lasting approx 25mins. Then the children will have a "meet and greet" with the puppets and have a go at holding them. During this time we have a talk about the history of the show and the influence Mr Punch and his gang have had in regards English culture. Finally the children are left with worksheets to make Punch and Judy finger puppets and a booth. (Worksheets will be given out by us with instructions and then left to complete in class)
This workshop includes worksheets for up to 30 children, however the show can be performed for as many children as you want, the more the merrier! More worksheets can be bought at an additional cost. Please request a quote when you enquire.
