Peter and Miraiker offer the best in entertainment. Whether you're looking for a Punch & Judy show, magic, balloons or other puppet shows, we offer a range of quality entertainment.
Of course you don't have to limit yourself to just one of these - any combination can be considered.
Punch & Judy Shows
When you book a Punch & Judy show with either Peter or Miraiker, you are guaranteed a traditional show.
Full sized, professional booths in the easily recognised red and white striped canvas are accompanied by quality, hand-carved wooden puppets. An action-packed story follows the antics of Mr Punch, Judy and the baby, Joey the clown, the policeman and the sausage-eating crocodile, plus many more characters.
Our shows are completely self-contained, including a battery operated amplification system when appropriate.
Punch & Judy shows are suitable for almost every type of event. Fetes and other outdoor events often require several shows over the course of the afternoon or day. For parties you may like to combine a Punch & Judy show with some magic and balloons.
Peter and Miraiker offer a variety of children's magic. All of our magic is bright and colourful to appeal to a young audience. Audience participation is encouraged and some children are invited up to help.
We are able to cater for a wide age range and have plenty of different effects for repeat bookings.
This is ideally combined with a puppet show.
Balloon modelling is a favourite with children these days and Peter and Miraiker are both able modellers.
Balloons always go down well at a party, whether it's just for the birthday child or one each for all of the children to take home with them.
They are also ideal for promotions - your customers will be delighted when their children have a balloon modelled for them when they visit your store.
Balloons are a great complement to a Punch & Judy show and we usually give a few away to the younger children after shows at fetes and other outdoor events.
Other Puppet shows
Puppet shows other than Punch & Judy are always available.
You can expect the same high quality of puppets in these shows, along with an action-packed story.
We are currently performing Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, George & the Dragon and more.
Adult groups such as Women's Institutes or retirement clubs can book Peter to come and give a light-hearted talk on the tradition of Punch & Judy.
Hear how the show has evolved and see the puppets close up. See what the show is like - from the inside, and just where does Mr Punch get his voice from?
Talks are usually rounded up with a show.
Talks are also available for schools. The content will vary depending on the age groups. These always finish with a show.
Miraiker's World of Puppets
Particularly suitable for schools and children's groups, have-a-go puppet workshops bring a range of quality puppets for the children to use and put on their own puppet shows. See our education page for more information.
