Weekend Without Walls

Tue 7 Feb 2017

The great outdoors beckons. Pack a picnic and head to the park to enjoy an afternoon of inventive performances - all new and completely free. From puppetry and acrobatics to tango and bingo, the local park just got a whole lot more exciting! Your host for the day will be Spymonkey's Petra Massey, and BSL interpreters Marco Nardi and Jill Blackadder will also be on hand throughout the day.

Corazón a Corazón

12.10pm  Deaf Men Dancing display their unique and compelling dance style, formed by fusing contemporary dance with British Sign Language. 

Bingo Lingo

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

Willy and Wally

Join street artists Cocoloco with an environmental message as they try to keep their sense of humour despite drowning in plastic rubbish.
