Serious Mischief Theatre Company

We saw this theatre and circus performance at another event and realised it fitted really well with our theme. A fantastic Family Show, so good we had to run it twice on the Saturday so you get chance to see it. An interactive story experience. This turbulent struggle of Sun ‘vs’ Wind heats up with audience participation in true street style with crowds vowing for their favourite character to out shine the other! There is also a chance for children in the audience to get involved by creating the different weather conditions needed for the show because, as we know, you

Anya one of the volunteers running the sessions said "Slackline Park available! Including beginner workshops (limited places) and practice sessions when weather permits.

Festival 8's organisers know some lovely talented folk that have been very helpful in our first year of setting up this wonderful event.  We saw one of the Geofest creative walkabouts and knew straight away we had to have them involved in the festival.  Geofest will be on hand to work along side the Earthbound Misfits and be providing not only a giant feature for the parade but also some of their signature workshops and activities. GeoFest Collective are a group of Midlands based performers specialising in unique walkabout acts, varied workshops and energetic shows incorporating fire, glow and live music.'
