Connecting  past and present

Clive Chandler
has worked in many Museums over the years, delivering both performances and workshops.

He is a regular at The Black Country Living Museum and you may well have seen him at Ironbridge Gorge Museum
He is most often called upon as a Professor of Punch and Judy but he can also offer other shows (Pinocchio, Snow Queen, Jack and the Beanstalk) and provide workshops in puppet making (including Shadow Theatre)

For the past 20 years he has been delivering Punch & Judy Shows as part of the award winning Toys and Games tours at The Museum of Cannock Chase, where he has become established as a firm favourite with vising groups of school children (and teachers!) from across the Midlands  (Before asking Clive to come to your school it is worth checking out whether this educational tour which includes a Punch and Judy Show might suit you better - click link). 

He is a member of the highly esteemed
Punch & Judy College of Professors and has performed Punch in many countries, including Austria, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, France, Italy, Germany, Croatia, Portugal, Slovakia, and Hungary

'Professor' Clive Chandler is recognised as one of England's leading performers of Punch & Judy. He presents the age-old drama in the context of the modern day and demonstrates the strength of a living traditon that stretches back more than 350 years.
