Tell Tale Hearts & Serious Mischief

The Wind & The Sun

The Wind & The Sun

An exciting outdoor circus theatre show based on the original fable by Aesop that celebrates the good old British weather!

Two rival siblings battle the elements in a competition to prove their strength. This turbulent struggle of Sun ‘vs’ Wind heats up with audience participation in true street style with crowds vowing for their favourite character to out shine the other! There is also a chance for children in the audience to get involved by creating the different weather conditions needed for the show because, as we know, you can’t always trust the British weather!
