EYE(PATCH)-POPPING ENTERTAINMENT

WHAT'S ON

Three performers blur the boundaries between hip-hop and circus, featuring breath-taking Cyr wheel moves, dextrous group juggling and feel-good choreographies performed to a pulsing soundtrack.

SIMPLE CYPHER

ROLL PLAY

DANCE/CIRCUS

An uplifting, feel good performance for audiences of all ages, prepare to be amazed by the explosive tricks and dexterity of Simple Cypher’s newest outdoor production.

Simple Cypher

ACRO SAILORS

ACROBATICS
Accro Sailors

Watch these intrepid sailors show off strength and agility that will astound and amaze.

 

No crow's nest? No problem! They'll simply balance on top of each other to form a human mast! Walk the plank? Not likely, as these guys prefer to tumble and somersault on it!

Combining free running, acrobatics, tricking and juggling, you'd be forgiven for thinking the circus has arrived in the Docks.

 

Putting the naughty in nautical, these charming and witty pirates can't help but impress and entertain.

JUGGLING PIRATES

CIRCUS
Juggling Pirates
Aaargh!

Two salty buccaneers are searching for booty and adventures on the high seas.

They sail, as if by maritime magic, atop pint-sized galleons gliding majestically across the land.

AAARGH!

THEATRE

Crew members will be recruited! Treasure maps will be deciphered! Booty will be discovered! Will you join them?

As if Gloucester Docks did not have enough thieving seagulls, these two come along!

 

These two are a pair of very naughty seagulls indeed, egging each other on to steal your food and peck away while you’re not looking.

Giant Seagulls

Ice cream is a firm favourite with these greedy gulls.

 

These guys strut around like they own the place - how entitled they are!

Feel free to try to chase them away.

GIANT SEAGULLS

THEATRE

HMS PUNAFORE

COMEDY

This seafaring spectacular is a riot of a musical comedy.
The boat and its crew are trying to perform Gilbert and Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore but it doesn’t quite go according to plan.

HMS Punafore
The Trawlers

With barnacle beards, big bouncy boots, and bright yellow suits, these seafaring fishermen are a spectacular.

 

They have many tales of the high seas to tell but watch out for the ones about the big fish…..

THE TRAWLERS

THEATRE

STEP HOP HOUSE

DANCE

A fresh, quirky and colourful collision of traditional, Hip Hop and Folk dance and music styles, Step Hop House is a high-energy remix of Maypole, Clogging, Ceilidh, Street, House and Break dancing.

Step Hop House

All performed to an epic live soundtrack of fiddle and beat boxing – this is Folk and Street Dance as you’ve never seen it before!

Life Boat

The shipwrecked Captain and Boatswain’s mate have been adrift since 1786 and are more than a little confused!

 

Batten down the hatches as we re-live every seafaring cliché from Treasure Island to Moby Dick!
