What we do
Our Street Festivals bring quality experiences to everyday places and our aim is to leave a little magic with each encounter. Circle shows are the most effective way of engaging large audiences with relatively small infrastructure and programmes have been shown to revitalise town centres, stimulate local economies and bring positive social experiences to local communities. Events can be geared towards entertainment or artistic outputs. We’ve more experience than anyone in the North of the UK in building small to medium scale street festivals on modest budgets. See our case studies to see how we’ve developed street festivals and communities through long-term regular provision.
We are regularly engaged to undertake full event management, act commissions, co-programming, production and strategic development of street festivals across the UK.
