Christopher Somerville (Mr. Bimbamboozle) is North Wales' best loved and most experienced children's entertainer. During term time he offers specialist Punch and Judy and puppet workshops in schools while his children's show combining Magic and Punch & Judy provides a delightful end of term reward day.

Drawing on his childhood memories and work as a Punch & Judy man Chris presents a fascinating workshop on the theme of Punch & Judy and the Seaside. The presentation is illustrated with pictures and puppets, and includes a performance of the traditional show.

There is an accompanying web presentation which the children can view after the visit to review what they have learned and offers material to download and print. This workshop can be adapted for different age ranges, and the historical content relating to Victorian life and seaside holidays of the past can be given varied emphasis.
Chris also collects toys, toys from the past, mechanical toys, and peasant toys from around the world. His intruiging "Toys that Move" workshop presents very simple design technology ideas to Reception children as well as fascinating older pupils. Story Book Magic is an introduction to different ways of telling stories, using both Magic and Puppets.
