Our jester act is one of the most popular jester acts in the UK! We are official resident jesters at Alnwick Castle (of Harry Potter film fame) and regularly work for English Heritage at their castles across the UK and have also been official jesters to both Tewkesbury Medieval Festival and Scotland's Festival of History. We also perform at many other medieval events including corporate parties, weddings, historical fairs and festivals.
Baldwin the Fool and Godfrey Pugh perform the best range of jester entertainment in the country including shows, stilt walking, circus skills workshops and roving performances. Our props are historically appropriate (so no plastic juggling equipment!) and we can provide a medieval tent and arena for our performances

Our comedy jester juggling show has been called the best of its kind by those in the know. Enjoyed by old and young alike this show is firmly aimed at family audiences but is also suitable for adult only audiences. Lots of visual entertainment and verbal comedy this show will have you laughing, cheering and even weeing (its okay it's just a sound effect we get audience members to say during a small part of the show!)
Stilt walking is great entertainment. We perform this highly visual entertainment in a comic interactive way to maximise the fun everyone has at your themed event. Our jester stilt walking costumes are unique and the giant shoes always garner looks and comments from people.
We provide the only medieval themed circus skills workshops in the country. All our circus equipment has been themed as far as possible so that it fits in within a medieval event. The equipment is made from cloth, wood or metal (with the exception of the diabolos which although rubber are black and white in colour). We can also provide a medieval arena for the workshop with banners and a medieval tent as further options
We can perform roving entertainment as ground based jesters. Our comic interaction and juggling will add a brilliant medieval ambience to your themed event. You may also like our roving peasants acts with their medieval cart
We can provide a medieval and tent and arena with banners for your event. We always provide a bunting & pole arena for events but the addition of banners and tent are great for setting the scene and creating a medieval atmosphere. The full tent and arena do, however, add to the set up and take down time and therefore a small additional fee is charged
