From crowd-pulling international shows, weird and wonderful walkabout acts and dancing in the streets to circus workshops, craft area and a host of fun activity, including facepainters, stilt walkers, a giant stegosaurus and a ‘smoothie’ bike, serving up freshly made flavours.
Amongst the programme highlights are Ockham’s Razor’s ‘Belly of the Whale’; Max Calaf Sevé’s ‘dip’; Gandini Juggling’s ‘8 Songs’; Acrojou’s ‘The Wheel House’ and Dizzy O’Dare’s ‘Baba Yaga’s House’. These shows are supported by Without Walls, England’s biggest network of outdoor arts festivals.
