Hoodwink Theatre perform at Baysgarth Park, Barton
Look up to the skies above Barton upon Humber’s Baysgarth Park on Sunday, August 8, and marvel at glorious failures and brilliant airborne innovations throughout history!
Flying monks, paper wings, balloons, feathers and aero-bicycles will endeavour to reach the sky thanks to Hoodwink Theatre who will be performing their very own celebration of the human aspiration to fly as part of the summer season of Performance in the Park.
“This really is an uplifting interactive show and will be just as much a crowd pleaser as the company’s other two performances at Barton in 2006 and 2008 were,” said Cllr Paul Vickers, chair of the town’s Tourism Partnership which organises Performance in the Park.
“It is suitable for all ages so we are looking forward to welcoming the young and not so young to the park for the performance which begins at 2pm,” he continued.
“I understand this is a new show created especially for festivals across the country this summer so I am sure it will delight the crowds.”
The performance celebrates the human aspiration to fly and the magnificent aerial failures, feats and innovations that have taken place throughout history. Charismatic characters, elegant comedy, visual flair and extraordinary effects make this an uplifting show for the whole family to enjoy and there is no admission charge.
And at the end of the performance visitors will get the chance to make their own flying machines during a free workshop.
