For various reasons I won’t be down in Brighton this weekend. However, I do hope to make it to the Covent Garden Puppet Festival and May Fair on Sunday. The event is held annually to celebrate Mr. Punch’s birthday, and features a church service with a reading by Mr. Punch himself. Getting to the festival is likely to be a chore. I checked the train times and reaching Euston for 10am requires leaving Coventry at 10:21 the night before, which means a bus journey is in store (and this is actually the normal Sunday service). I’m determined not to miss this, despite the failings of public transport.
If anyone fancies meeting me in London for coffee and puppets on Sunday, drop me an email or comment.
