Covent Garden May Fayre. Sunday 12 May 2024

The Annual Puppet Festival draws puppeteers from all over the UK to entertain families through amusing puppet shows. The date of the event is always the second Sunday in May. The setting is St. Paul's Church, Covent Garden, London. It was soon unofficially renamed into the Actor's Church, and so it is referred to today. The date of the festival also celebrates the birthday of a famous puppet couple Punch and Judy. According to the diary of Samuel Pepys, It was exactly on the 9th of May in 1662 when​ he first saw the amusing puppet comedy in London.
