The shows have been honed and improved again and again to ensure they are of the highest standard and maximum impact and entertainment. (All Days)
Gareth Jones performs two great shows: The Classic Strait Jacket and Chain Escape - A true street theatre classic. A family show with a strait jacket and chains escapology finale, and plenty of laughs along the way. The Plastic Fantastic Show - A genuine up-grading of the escape style show. Marvel as Gareth is manually wrapped in 100m of multi-purpose cling film. With his life in the hands of the audience, Gareth attempts the seemingly impossible escape. (All Days)
Comedy Club 4 Kids
Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children and their families… but without the rude bits! It's just like a normal comedy club, but it's on in the day, kids are allowed in, and thus there is a higher than usual chance of heckles like "why is that your face!? (All Days)
Black Eagles Acrobats
The Black eagles are a troupe of totally stunning acrobats from Tanzania, now based in the UK. They perform an amazing acrobatic show all set to lively African music, the show progresses through a series of powerful and graceful acrobatic and dance routines.
