Weekend Without Walls

Two days of free arts in the parks

Weekend Without Walls

The great outdoors beckons. Pack your family, your picnic and head to the park to enjoy an afternoon of inventive performance, all new shows and completely free. From mini theatre shows – to tango – to bingo – and flying through the air; the local park just got a whole lot more exciting – why not make an afternoon of it? 

Beryl and Cyril hope to make Bingo an official Paralympic sport, so get your eyes down for Bingo Lingo, a cheeky reinvention of this great British tradition. 

Join Willy and Wally as they try to keep up their sense of humour despite drowning in plastic rubbish, in an environmental message from street artists Cocoloco.

 Company Chameleon’s Witness This is a powerful and personal piece of dance theatre, telling the story of choreographer Kevin Edward Turner following his journey with bipolar.

 In Corazón a Corazón, Deaf Men Dancing display their unique and compelling dance style, formed by fusing contemporary dance with British Sign-Language. 

Interact with a performer on a one-to-one basis in Theatre for One by Lempen Puppet Theatre. Look inside a lion’s mouth or a space helmet, or even a man’s pregnant belly! 

Orbis is a duet from Humanhood which explores the relationship between humankind and the moon, with a 360° surround sound score.

To me, To you is the new playful aerial dance show by the critically acclaimed company, Wired Aerial Theatre performed on the ground and in the air about finding balance. 

Happy Feet is a dazzling dance-off, with the Ragroof Players, starting with a cheeky Charleston and moving and grooving right up to the present moment.

Bingo Lingo is developed with support from the Mayor of London’s Liberty Festival. Happy Feet is funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Celebrate Fund.
