Well how long have you got!! In 1983 – when my children were 3 years and 6 months old their playgroup in Forest Hill where I used to live, were putting on a small fete – I suggested someone put on a puppet show and I was put in the frame. I did that puppet show and never looked back – or forward – so to speak.
Above is my first Puppet Booth ! made from cardboard ! My first character was The Chicken Lady – and I dressed up in a yellow chicken outfit, complete with rubber feet and feathers!! A few years later I decided to adopt a new character and hence Mrs Back to Front was born.
My Daughter Sam who has her own children now – performs as Dizzy Lolly! (see other pages about her entertaining) She is a Brilliant Children’s entertainer – hopefully she had a good teacher !!! ha ha !
The Chicken Lady – My Very first Character
Why ‘The name ‘Mrs Back to Front ‘ It was all in the name at first – and to this day the children still love it. I’m a mum and feel that I know what the children would want at their party. The most important aspect of my show is fun and laughter and making sure that the birthday child is having fun. I know how stressful it can be for mums to manage an excited bunch of children – and that is where I come in, with many years of experience I can organise your party and take away all of that stress. I belong to – The International Brotherhood of Magicians, the Kent Magicians Guild, and the Punch and Judy Fellowship. We are also members of Equity.
