Feet First Entertainment Ady Lee will be on the streets clowning, juggling and much more.

Inner State The Duchess of Wormwood, accompanied by Raddle the Jester, will be scouring the City on their Hobby Horse to collect jokes to keep Pen Dragon amused. Storytelling, loud mouthed puppets and comic capers!

From Here to There

Tell Tale Hearts Theatre, 1pm, The Collection. Tickets £3

Thursday 8th July

A show that’s all about ‘building’ bridges! That’s full of the joy of building and knocking down, climbing over and crawling under, of hiding, of surprising and peek-a-boo! A show to make you smile! A smile is a bridge from ear to ear! Using gentle percussive music, objects and the world of the imagination, two quite independent individuals discover ways to find and reach each other. For children aged from 18 months - 4 years. Please note tickets are limited for this production to ensure an intimate setting can be created.
