Line Up

Step Hop House 

by Folk Dance Remixed  

Step Hop House is a feel-good funky performance around a maypole. 

A fresh, quirky, colourful and magical collision of traditional, Hip Hop and

Folk dance and music styles: high-energy, with a unique remix of

Maypole, Clogging, Ceilidh, Street, House and Breakdance with a hint

of African & Bollywood… to a live soundtrack of fiddle & beat

boxing – this is Folk and Street Dance like you’ve never seen it before! 

Musical Performance

The Bobbysocks 

3-part harmony group serving up an eclectic blend of folk,

boogie-woogie and alt-country tunes.

 

 

Musical Performance

Batida Rio 

Warrington's samba band playing Afro-Brazilian inspired

rhythms mixed with contemporary styles, movement, and fun! 

 

Warrington: Rubber Stamped 

Artist and Workshop Facilitator Sam Selley invites participants to collaborate

on a large-scale piece exploring what community, and specifically what

belonging to a community within Warrington, means to them.

Participants will create stamp(s) using foam and/or lino, and will receive

guidance and advice throughout the workshop on how to safely use lino

tools, and on techniques they may want to try out.

Foam will also be available to make stamps with, so that all ages

and abilities are able to participate.  

 

Tale Traders 
By Story Stitchers 

Step right up to the Tale Traders Story Stall, a magical table top

story swap bursting with upcycled wonders, each whispering a tale. 

Prepare to be enchanted by stories that ignite a spark in you to spin

your very own legendary yarn. Crafted with love by the fine folks of

Warrington, dive in to honour your champions, craft bold adventures and

celebrate the objects you love. 
 

 

Bachelors Of Paradise 

A comedic stilt walkabout about Birds of Paradise and their

quest for love.Throughout the day, see these creatures

flexing their wings, preening themselves

and busting out dance moves. 

 

The Birdcage Stage  

A beautiful giant golden birdcage structure will fill the park with a

host of magical entertainment, circus and music, as well as

showcasing young talent from the Warrington area. 

Follow an acrobatic white rabbit on a circus adventure

as costumed characters swing, fly and climb the gilded structure. 

Journey Down the Rabbit Hole as The Birdcage becomes

the stage for local artists and musicians specially selected by

Young Producers in a celebration of imagination and young talent. 

Get involved and create your own bird head dress and come and

shake your tail feather for the Birdy Disco Finale 

Sit back, relax and be entertained, with an action-packed day full

of music, circus and dancing. 

 

Everywhere’s A Beach 
Hikapee 

Join us for a day at the beach unlike any other in this high

energy, circus theatre show!  Perfect for the

whole family, Everywhere’s a Beach is a charmingly ridiculous

performance, taking place on a giant revolving beach parasol! 

This dynamic, dizzying and downright daft show will leave you dancing

with delight! You’ll be swept away as this show embraces everything

we love about the beach. Our spinning parasol creates the

perfect setting for our eccentric beach loving characters. 

Watch as their world collides with yours, as sophistication

turns to chaos in this aerial circus performance.
