JASON MAVERICK SOLO SHOW. High energy street performer Jason Maverick has a knack for captivating audiences of all ages. Youngsters will be in giggles as he juggles, mimes and throws in a bit of skilled robotic dancing to a pumping soundtrack. Jason has some quirky tricks all his own, such as a sink plunger on his head with an audience member throwing hoops onto it. He’s your man for a slick, professional routine combining traditional street performance with original ideas. Performance times at the festival: Saturday 6 July: 1pm and 3pm in the arena, with a walkabout at 2pm
SHED OF STORIES. Stories (classic tales as well as new writing and even improvised stories) are told by performers both inside and outside the shed at various intervals throughout the day. Between story times the shed becomes a pop-up library where children and families can read together. There is also be a small writing desk with paper and pencils where older children can pen their next masterpiece
