Wonderful World 2018
Taking place on Sunday 05 August 2018, from 11am to 4pm in the beautiful town centre space of People’s Park in Grimsby.
Grimsby-based arts and cultural organisation The Culture House Ltd, is delighted to announce that its outdoor summer programme of street arts, circus and music held in People’s Park, Grimsby will begin on Sunday 5 August.
Following the recent success of the Orsted Great Grimsby 10K which ended in People’s Park, residents and visitors now have the opportunity to experience a range of outstanding street performances, for free during the first event in the series, entitled Wonderful World.
The day’s programme, which runs from 11am – 4pm, includes a wide range of acts from around the country.
Supported by Arts Council England and North East Lincolnshire Council and held in partnership with Circus250, the event will additionally host circus and craft workshops as well as nature activities.
Joli Vyann with ‘Lance Moi en Air’
Performers appearing at Wonderful World include Artizani with Syrovy – a show inspired by the comic routines of Buster Keaton and with influences from Gene Kelly and Neil Armstrong. It features silent-movie clowning, acrobatics and slack-rope walking.
Also on the list are Joli Vyann with ‘Lance Moi en Air’, a breath-taking dance-piece about the sensitivity and connection between two people.
As well as a range of other performers, audiences can also enjoy a circus hoop show from Angie Mack, who comes armed with a large stack of hoops and some funky tunes, ready to wow everyone with her impromptu hula hooping displays, before getting a few helpers up to show just how much fun it is.
The public is strongly advised to walk to this free event.
Charlotte Bowen, Culture House director, said:
“Wonderful World aims to make high quality culture accessible to everyone and we’re always pleased to utilise our fantastic town centre space for this.
“There will be a number of touring acts as seen at major festivals around the country performing on 5 August as well as opportunities for children to take part in circus, craft and nature workshops.
“In partnership with Circus250 which is this year celebrating 250 years ‘since circus began’ we are also hosting the Circus250 Caravan, which provides a chance for people to go inside a real circus performers caravan and ask questions about their lives and what’s involved in the world of circus.
“We’re aiming for it to be both an inspiring and entertaining day for local people.”
