Garaghty and Thom

Two highly skilled individual performers come together as a double act like no other. Stunning tricks and hilarious comedy combine to create unique live shows full of mayhem- some planned some made up on the spot.

Their highly energised performances have been seen across the World. They have amazed audience in theatres, on TV and Radio, in cabaret and creating pop up crowds with their street theatre shows. 

Richard Garaghty and Goronwy Thom have both worked as solo performers since they were teenagers so have been in show business for over 20 years!

Pif Paf’s 'SEED'

A surprising and inspiring hitchhike on the journey from small acorns to great oaks with a Rockabilly Tree-Planting Anarcho-Nomad.

Join Wilford planting trees where he shouldn’t - living in his shed and on the run from his past and his arch-enemies, slugs, out to get him for his contraband seeds.

Intimate and explosive, this one man static street theatre show is full of captivating images, puppetry, giant inflatables, live and specially composed music.

Plus Pif-Paf’s trademark Heath Robinson meets Mad Max inventions and a journey into the life of the young and ancient living beings that we walk under every day.

Summer Island presented by Daisy Farris and Nicola Barker

Performed in a beautiful small tent, be part of the audience following the delightful puppets, Sophie and her Grandmother.

Watch as they spend time together eating strawberries, listening to the long tailed ducks, watching flying fish from their boat and building a camp fire on their Summer Island.

This magical interactive performance is about adventure, nature and the puppets love for each other and their island life.

Suitable for 4+yrs. Small children must be accompanied by an adult.
