An Italian puppet play day

Samuel Pepys first recorded a Punch and Judy show with this one line in his diary back in 1662: “Thence to see an Italian puppet play”.

Fast forward 351 years and I found myself doing the same thing at the Covent Garden May Fayre and Puppet Festival very near the spot Pepys saw his first Punch and Judy show.
