World’s longest-running Punch and Judy show notches up 150 years | Mail Online

It’s as synonymous with the British seaside as the bucket and spade or fish and chips. And now one family is celebrating 150 years of Punch and Judy.

Passed down three generations, the show is run by Jacqueline Millband-Codman after she inherited it from her great-grandfather who started the tradition in 1860.

Mrs Millband-Codman, 67, said she has tweaked the slapstick comedy only slightly – cutting the duration by half due to ‘parents’ attention spans’ – over the years, but it remains true to the traditional plot.
