2019 Fool of Muncaster is Gacko, AKA Gary Bridgens from Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria.

Gary has been performing at Muncaster for many years now, giving great service to the art of Tomfoolery and is a true Muncaster stalwart. He has spent years entertaining folk both in Cumbria and all over the UK, as well as being a pivotal part of the team behind Muncaster’s Halloween Castle tours, involving working closely with Performing Arts Department students from the University of Cumbria. He is a true titan of street theatre and everyone at Muncaster is so pleased to see him crowned as the Fool of Muncaster 2019.

Gacko is seen here in his Fool of Muncaster regalia with his family:
