Have A Go Pirates
Although these pirates might look the part they haven’t really got that much experience pirating. Actually they haven’t got any, but they’re trying really hard.
As they make their way through the crowded streets they practice their pillaging techniques, although being so overly critical of their own performances they never actually manage to get any pillaging done.
With their ‘Practice Pirate Ship’ and their pirate wits about them all around will want to join in the banter and help them become the true pirates that deep down they know they are.
A la Puppet Carte
On the menu is not one, not two, but three pop up puppet stages built onto the backs of electric tricycles. Each mobile stage is a show full of surprises, fun and heart-warming stories of friendship and a sense of home. Stories include the Story of the Scary Noise and the Magic Samovar. Presented by Thingumajig Theatre.
11am – 11.45am
The Queen of Hearts and The Mad Hatter
Monsieur Monsieur the Mime Artist
Enjoy some super local performers and buskers throughout the day!
