Sunday Assembly

Last year this was for some people the most amazing thing they did all weekend.  We had laughter, tears, joy, games and some great music...... if you'd love to celebr8 life then this is worth getting up for.

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.

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

Minimatt Busking Stage

Festival 8 is successful because lots of people come together to make it happen.  This year we have a new partnership with a local Production Studio that is going to run a busking stage.  They will pepper the stage with a couple of their house acts, that use their recording facilities in Grimsby and then the stage is open to all comers, simply book in and join in the fun!
