Here are just a few of the hundreds of thank you letters which give a good idea of the standard of show you can expect. Y

You can also find my reviews on Google, Netmums and Poptop.

Many thanks to Benjamin for a fantastic event and for keeping 35 x 6-year-old's mesmerised! Both the children and adults loved the Punch and Judy show. The magic act was a big hit and everyone went home very happy indeed. Thank you again, and I give you a very hearty recommendation!!

Hi Benjamin, 

Just wanted to say HUGE THANK YOU for performing on Saturday for Ellie’s 5th birthday party. 

Everyone loved it and I was really pleased how the party went and you were the main factor in its huge success. The Mr Punch & Judy performance hut looked wonderful in the hall and your magic tricks and juggling were very fantastic. Keeping all the children (nearly 30!) engaged for over an hour was very impressive. 

Thanks again

An email from a School show....


Hi Ben Thank you for coming to Applecroft on Tuesday. It was a very hectic day as we were indoors rather than outside. We did not expect so many parents to come! I have received several very positive comments about your show, so I wanted to let you know.






Dear Ben

Thank you so much for giving a splendid performance at Cheriton Fete on Monday. It was very good of you to add some magic and juggling to entertain the children when you realised there might be a bit of a hiatus after the rather short musical interlude from the school!

I shall not hesitate to recommend you to any future fete organisers.........(this was my third and last!)

Many thanks again,



What an event!

The doors opened and customers flooded in. Thanks to ‘Mr Punch & Judy’ (Ben Hasker) who agreed to do two shows, most people were able to stay and enjoy Punch & Judy’s antics, magic, juggling and balloon modelling.

Great fun was had by all and that wasn’t just the children. The adults also enjoyed shouting out all the great one liners ‘look out, he’s behind you’. A total of 147 people watched both shows.

While people waited for the second show they chose books in the library and made the most of the sunshine outside in the South Portslade Children’s Centre garden. Some stayed for a picnic lunch and played outside in the garden. A great time was had by all.
