Covent Garden May Fayre and Puppet Festival 2016


Enjoy a day of traditional British entertainment at the St Paul's Church (the Actor's Church) in Covent Garden.

Celebrating the anniversary of the first time that Samuel Pepys recorded seeing a Punch and Judy-style show in London in 1662, this fun festival is a popular annual treat for families. Puppeteers travel from all over England to perform.

This year is the 41st Covent Garden May Fayre, and it starts with a procession at 11am around the neighbourhood, before a church service at midday and puppet shows from 12.30pm. You'll also find puppet workshops, food stalls and entertainment including maypole dancing, clowns and folk music bands.
