Enter Edem : Comedy Cavemen

A posse of Palaeolithic cavemen characters causing mischief and spreading an
environmental message, you better hold onto your snacks as these silly hunter
gatherers aren’t quite civilized yet!

This team of toothy trouble makers will have audiences laughing and running
to the recycling bin as they tell the tale (through grunts and groans) of their
time spent frozen in ice to be awoken into a world of plastic problems to be
solved.

Beautiful Creatures Theatre : Rat Choc Chip
Is there something moving in the chocolate chips? Can you hear a squeak
from the rainbow sprinkles? Are those little footprints in the raspberry swirl?
Everyone loves an ice cream, so queue up at the Rat Choc Chip ice cream cart
for a tail of the unexpected and a double scoop with a furry surprise. A very
funny new walkabout performance from Beautiful Creatures Theatre. Be
charmed by the lovable and haphazard ice cream vendor, help with her
desperate attempts to keep her furry friends out of sight of the health
inspector, and see if you can tell the difference between chocolate sprinkles
and well, let’s just say, little rodent ‘gifts’!
The performance will wander about your event, finding opportunities to
entertain and disgust your audiences with this hilarious and engaging show.

Dizzy O’Dare : Do Do Rider
Walkabout, roaming show by Dizzy O’Dare
Rust & Stardust : Tweethearts
A wonderful puppetry tale to delight all ages.
When Miss Maisie and Miss Daisie have to close the Sweethearts Tea Room,
the birds who live in the eaves and feed on leftover cake decide to open for
business as usual. Mayhem ensues as Wren and Sparrow battle baking, fight
with flour and tinker with tea leaves – and deal with some very cross
customers!

Nearly There Yet : Flying Bazazi Brothers
This heady mix of celebrity, circus, and family history steeped in tradition is a
real one off.
The Bazazi Brothers style is part Cirque du Soleil, part Tom Jones – with a
little Swayze thrown in for good measure. This riotous double act, dance,
juggle, and fall over each other for your viewing pleasure and features
internationally renowned superstars Edward and Kaveh Bazazi. Prepare to be
amazed, prepare to be dazzled, and prepare to be prepared. If you want to forget about your troubles and focus on someone else’s, come
and see The Flying Bazazi brothers. Ridiculous dancing, dad humour, and a
surprising amount of skill and dexterity makes this a show you won’t want to
miss.

Sunday 25th July

Beautiful Creatures Theatre : Bell Orchestra
Bell Orchestra is an interactive musical game for families, that invites
audiences of all ages to come together to play beautiful melodies on a set of
giant chimes.
Guided by performers the participant percussionists follow patterns and
improvisational instructions to strike the chimes with their beaters, each
chime playing a different note with striking resonance.
Audiences stop to listen to the unique sounds, captivated by the spectacle and
charmed by the joy of watching participants learn the sequences and tuning in
to each other.
With a playful invitation and ceremonial tone, this unique instrument will
create many memorable moments of togetherness throughout the event.

Bootwork Theatre : JukeBoxes
Two beautiful 1950’s Jukeboxes sit side-by-side.
Watch them spring to life as two performers (hidden inside) re-create classic
pop music videos in a lip-syncing musical medley.
Using props, masks, puppets and a terrible selection of wigs, the kitsch duo
bring to life some of our favourite celebrity pop-stars from past and present.
The Beatles, Sinead O’Connor, Miley Cyrus, Stevie Wonder and Adele all
make cameos – and audiences are encouraged to sing or dance along with the
show.
The show is played in repetition throughout the event, come along and
singalong whatever your age, there’s a little something for everyone.

Frolicked : SEEING RED
A story telling/puppetry show that is a modern reworking of the classic fairy
tale Red Riding Hood.
Seeing Red tells the tale of a girl who learns how to take matters into her own
hands and become master of her own fate.
A furry suitcase unfolds into a wolf. A Grandma has a fiery passion. A little
girl finds out that it’s ok to get angry sometimes. And a twist sees Little Red
become the true heroine of this classic tale.
Full of red-related surprises, a dose of humour, a mini mob of original puppet
characters, and some very special effects, all crammed into a massive, furry
suitcase,.
