Weymouth’s Prof. Mark Poulton talks about the history of  Punch and Judy at the seaside to a backdrop of  a gathering of Punch and Judys from across the country at The Big Grin Punch and Judy anniversary celebrations in Weymouth in 2012.

This gem of seaside history which contains quite a few images and film clips of Punch and Judy in Weymouth in years gone by was commissioned by The Victoria and Albert Museum.

Weymouth is probably the last seaside town in the country to have regular shows busked on the beach so if you’re down over the summer season please  drop by and take in Mark’s show and help sure that this great seaside tradition continues well into the future.
