Posted by on Jun 12, 2013 in News |

The hugely popular seated Theatre Tent returns in 2013 with a programme including Rob, Dex & The Entertainingly Different Gang who will start the mornings off with their Rise and Shine shows and will also be bringing some ‘Traditional Tales’ to life.  Festival favourites Le Navet Bete return to create more mayhem with their Extravaganza of clowning, acrobatics, mime and music. There is magic from the master of conjuring Peter Clifford and a fast paced juggling spectacular from Dan the Hat. Plus we travel back in time with Trifle Gathering Productions for a Curious Evening of Trance and Rap with The Ogden Sisters, and witness George Formby’s rise from awkward stable boy to one Britain’s biggest starts in a unique one-man performance from Ewan Wardrop. To top it all off there’s extreme cabaret from Carney Cabaret and The Bo Diddlers (a Morris dance troupe with a difference) performing ‘The Six Rods at Dawn’. The evenings in The Theatre Tent once again feature stand-up comedy as ‘Scary Dave presents’ Robin Ince, Tom Price, Jim Smallman, Felix Dexter, Tony Cowards, Gareth Berliner, Nick Stein, Dougie Dunlop and Sully O’Sullivan.
