Les Nottle was a College member working in the field of children’s entertainment and magic.
He billed himself as a Magical Clown but unlike a number of his contemporaries working in the same field he could also perform a Punch & Judy Show that met the most demanding standards of his Professor colleagues.
Les was particularly proud that one client had booked him for twenty five consecutive years.
A genial man, he was equally at home in drawing rooms or theatres and said he was happy to perform to an audience of two people or a thousand.
He took part with great enthusiasm in the celebrations for Mr. Punch’s 325th birthday in Covent Garden in 1987.
