The Case Of The Rhyming Crime

Holmes and Watson:: The Case Of The Rhyming Crime

See Holmes and Watson as never before, as Arthur Conan Doyle’s adventures are turned into clever verse and lively lyrics by accomplished spoken word performer, Dr Sam Illingworth and writer Mr Dan Simpson.
Join this famous duo in a razor-sharp exchange of words as their conversation becomes a spectacular display of rhyme and reasoning. But as the consulting detective and his trusty Doctor companion recount their successful cases in verse and metre, not all is as it seems… Sherlock and poetry are totally complementary and what’s the result? Why – it’s completely elementary!

Curious Creations: Froojamaflip and Fred

This unique garden themed duo are a high impact and visual act, full of quirky detail, especially designed to encourage a better understanding of the natural environment. Inspired by the Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Froojamaflip is an 8ft stilted character, created from handmade, painted and textured fruit and vegetables. From head to toe he’s crafted with a stunning eye for detail and will be brought to life with a series of individual animatronic effects. Through storytelling, this walkabout act brings to life 'Lucy Leek’, 'Bertie Banana' and ‘Adam Apple’ but watch out as some of the fruit and vegetables are not quite what they seem! Accompanied by Fred the gardener they will give away seeds, fruit and vegetables as part of this wonderful walkabout act.

Memory Man

Nearly There Yet: Memory Man

From the producers of The Flying Bazazi Brothers, Memory Man is a charming one man wordless piece set to a beautiful soundtrack and uses familiar props including teddy bears, a radio, bunting and a working electric train set, to gently look at our ideas of memory. The centre piece of the show is a structure on which memories are gathered and hung up for us all to see. The spectacular finale sees the entire 4 metre high set – including a working bubble machine - balanced on the performers chin. A show to remember!

Playground of Illusions

Travelling Light Circus: Playground of Illusions

The Playground of Illusions is a collection of 8 ‘giant toys’ that each contain a visual or auditory illusion. The toys are placed in an area that the audience are free to wander round and explore. Each illusion is self-sufficient and works brilliantly on its own, together they make an unforgettable and fascinating experience that is inspirational, educational and (most importantly) awesome FUN! The design of the illusions is inspired by steampunk and a sense of playful invention –with levers to pull and wheels to turn, buttons to push and pedals to pedal. Vintage industrial machines are re-used to make the quirky gadgets, creating an intriguing visual spectacle that will draw visitors in and ignite their imaginations.
