Free Family Festival

Come and join Ruthie and Angie who will be making, building and playing all Saturday on Pollination Street. Try and find a cosy hiding place in the willow den where you can weave your own colours and shapes into the willow, see what sounds you can make out of old junk – from rain makers to hooters and shakers, then join them again on Sunday to throw some shapes on the dance floor for the Tiny Dancers Family Disco which will be taking a Roots vibe this year!

Happy Campers Theatre

The Fisherman Fable

The wash of the waves, the whisper of the wind, the sting of the salt. The sea can be a lonely place. When a message in a bottle finds its way into a forlorn fisherman’s net, he discovers the true secrets of the sea. As the riddles unfold, the story is told… With puppetry, original live music, and wistful storytelling, Happy Campers Theatre offers up a sweet, enchanting maritime adventure.
