Street Theatre acts ready to take centre stage this summer with free shows across Bromsgrove district

STREET theatre performers are dusting off their hoops, sewing their costumes and practising their jokes, ready to entertain residents and visitors in Bromsgrove district throughout the summer.

Later in July, Bromsgrove’s free Street Theatre programme will be back for the first time since 2019, with six outdoor events at various locations.

The shows, running from 11am until 3pm, will be performed alongside stalls, activities, and walkabout acts.

Bromsgrove District Council’s portfolio holder for leisure services, Coun Phil Thomas, said: “It’s been a long time coming but I’m so glad we’re starting to see community events taking place around the district again.

“Grab your picnic and some deck chairs and head to one of our beautiful parks to enjoy free street theatre entertainment.”

The programme will start at Catshill Village Meadow on July 29 with The Wonder Woman Street Show and Carlos Airhead.

On August 3, family favourites Professor Chandler’s Punch and Judy Show and Bell and Bullock – Cabin Fever will be at Charford Recreation Ground.

Bell and Bullock will then be moving to Wythall Park on August 4 alongside Daft as a Brush.

And on August 5, Daft as a Brush and Nat Lunatrick will grace Hagley Recreation Ground.

After a short break, the Black Eagles will be at St Chad’s Park in Rubery on August 11, alongside Angie Mack Hula Hoop Street Show.

Both performers will then head to Sanders Park for the final event on August 12.
