At the Public Hall, West Street, Liskeard, PL14 6BW. Meet at 7pm for coffee/tea/wine and conversation. The talk starts at 7.30pm and ends at about 9pm. FREE for members; for visitors/guests, £6 at the door.

The inimitable Bertie gives his comic take on the history of the most famous puppet character of all time, Mr Punch, a Commedia del Arte figure whose comic irreverence gave Punch magazine its title. That's the way to do it!
