Happy Birthday, Mr Punch
14 July – 9 December
V&A Museum of Childhood, Cambridge Heath Road, E2
Punch Professors in England is an exhibition of the photographer and LCC tutor Tom Hunter’s works, featuring contemporary Punch practitioners, known since Victorian times as Professors, who for generations have brought the story of Punch and Judy to life with their wit and personality. Specially commissioned for Mr Punch’s birthday celebrations, the portraits show each Professor alongside their booth, expressing the highly individual approaches each of them have to their performance within essentially English settings.
