Tom Brace: Eat, Sleep, AMAZE, RepeatIn Person

We were lucky enough to see Tom Brace two years ago, and even got a personal magic show as we were eating lunch too ! He amazed us with his tricks then, and his show was brilliant – highly recommended for everyone !

Featuring magic inspired by classic board games, internet crazes and all the day time television he watched. Get ready to expect the unexpected at an evening for the whole family. 

9th – 14th August

BromanceIn Person

Again, we have been lucky enough to see this show a few years ago and were were amazed by it then, and look forward to seeing it again and how its grown and changed. Prepare to be awestruck ….

Audacious, touching, exhilarating tour-de-force of physical heroics where handshakes become handstands and backslaps become backflips

August 3rd – 29th

It’s a really important year for everyone involved in the festivals this year so please show your support – online and in person if you can !

Don’t miss Dr Brown…..(or his singing tiger!)

If you haven’t seen the absolutely fantastic Dr Brown children’s show in the past couple of years at the fringe festival, please do go and check it out…

This year, there will only be two shows at the festival and they are this weekend, the 17th and 18th August at 11.50 at the Underbelly Bristo Square…Dr Brown Brown Brown Brown Brown and his singing tiger is an excellent show for children, with lots of audience interaction and participation and the singing tiger is totally captivating for younger children….

Dr Brown won the Comedy award last year and if you have seen the adult show you may wonder how it can possibly translate into a children’s show, but it does and its great !!

Infact, I think I prefer the kids show even ……don’t miss it !
