On Saturday the 19th of May Freeman Street Market has invited the fabulous, hugely talented and almost uninsurable Earthbound Misfits circus skills company to do whatever it is that they do right in the centre of our market.
They’ll be stilt walking, circus skills workshops but the company’s most popular performance piece involves throwing balls, rings, clubs, fruit, vegetables, rubber chickens, small mammals, woodland creatures, sharp & hot objects. You name it they will try to juggle it or balance it or on it. This show involves other skills such as diabolo, unicycles, walking globe and the occasional straight jacket escape. The audience is encouraged to spontaneously join in with their own comments and wit, this we find is the best canvas to work upon and often produces the best and most memorable moments of any performance.
As if that wasn’t enough we have the team from NMTF with the Making Market’s Matter Roadshow. Always a favourite at our market, the team will be painting faces, running the basketball competition, making sure market staff don’t sneak into the Voucher Vault and generally keeping the peace, oh and not to forget giving away a whole host of great prizes.
It’s a fun packed day for everyone, it starts at 10am and it’s all totally free!
