Codman's Punch & Judy :: Shared Description

Codman's Punch & Judy was started in Llandudno in 1860 by Richard Codman, a travelling showman who was stranded in Llandudno after his horse died. He gathered driftwood from the beach and hand carved the Punch & Judy puppets and the proscenium which you still see here today. In 1864 he gained approval from Lord Mostyn to perform on Llandudno promenade. The show, now in the care of the 5th generation of the Codman family, has performed every summer for over 150 years.
