Georgian Punch and Judy

Beamish Georgian Fair 2013

Every May Beamish Museum, in the North East of England,  holds its four day Georgian Fair. It is one of the most popular events in the calendar. Authentic costumes, stalls and entertainment recreate the hustle and bustle of a bye gone era. Punch and Judy Shows were a regular feature in country fairs long before the rise of seaside holidays. In fact Punch and Judy was first seen in England in 1662. I am sure the folk in Georgian times were just as vocal and appreciative of Mr Punch and his antics as the modern audiences visiting the living history museum today are.
