Rat Choc Chip, performed by Beautiful Creatures
Join the queue at the Rat Choc Chip ice cream cart for a ‘tail’ of the unexpected. Be charmed by the lovable ice cream vendor, help with her desperate attempts to keep her furry friends out of sight of the health inspector and see if you can tell the difference between chocolate sprinkles and well, let’s just say, little rodent ‘gifts’!

Local Radio, performed by Hunt & Darton
We will be asking audiences to build a radio show with us: creating jingles, phone-ins, features and taking responsibility for what discs should be spun. This show celebrates everything local; people taking pride in where they live. Come and be part of it and tell your story or perform your skill… perpetually present, we will be live and continuous, building a brand new local radio show with and for our immediate audience. Come and be local with us!

The Flying Bazazi Brothers
Bounding onto the stage like Wham in cheap suits after too much Lucozade, this riotous double act dance, juggle and fall over each other for your viewing pleasure. Prepare to be amazed, to be dazzled and to wonder why they don’t just quit while they’re ahead! Ridiculous dancing, dad humour and a surprising amount of skill and dexterity make this a show you won’t want to miss.

Events are between 12:30 and 17:30

Disabled Access to all events, although via cobbled streets.
There are plenty of restaurants, bars and pubs for refreshments throughout the Citadel area.

THESE ARE FREE EVENTS – NO TICKETS REQUIRED
