Patch is a fool of international repute, having performed all over the UK and Europe. He is a regular performer at Hampton Court Palace and has also appeared at the Tower of London, and at – among others – Stirling, Cardiff and Caerphilly Castles.
In 2002 he was fortunate enough to perform for Her Majesty the Queen as part of her Golden Jubilee celebrations. In 2005 he was created English Heritage National Jester.
Patch has researched the nature of fooling and the history of the Fool and has devised a character which is as engaging as it is comical. Using the character of the traditional English Fool who ‘hath not so much brains as earwax’ he embodies the very spirit of Folly. Equally at home at a castle, manor house or hotel, he is guaranteed to spread motley mayhem all around.
Capable of a large variety of serious silliness he can perform as a mix and mingle entertainer, or in his own stand alone show, lasting up to forty minutes and culminating in fire eating on stilts. The performance can be staged indoors (with ceiling heights 10 feet and above,) outdoors; or indoors with an outdoor finale if fire is not possible indoors. If necessary the finale can be performed without fire.
Patch has also made a speciality of banquets and weddings and is happy to provide a bespoke service for clients looking for a traditional mediaeval banquet or a wedding with something different.
