Big Imaginations Festival Has Come To Town


At the weekend we had our first Big Imaginations Festival show, and what a show it was!



Catapluf’s Musical Journey had the entire audience dancing in their seats and shaking their Shaker Music Makers in time to the beat. 


Adriano Adewale and his band of exceptionally talented musicians had the audience in the palm of their hands as they introduced them to music from around the world, being performed on an array of musical instruments..including a pair of FLIP FLOPS?!? They even continued the party into the craft area when the show had finished.




There was an amazing atmosphere from the second we opened the doors right up to the free balloon giveaway at the end of the show and the feedback was fantastic…audiences described it as “fantastic”, “Incredible“, “Wonderful“, “Unique” and “Really inspiring. Wonderful to have such excellent quality performances on the doorstep! Amazing”.





The festival continues this weekend with a special Halloween Treat with Poetry Joe. He’s here to share his Fairytales Gone Bad on Sunday 29th.

At 11.00am in Grannylocks and the Monstrous Duckling; A father returns home with a magical cloak. A cloak that hides a story…

Did you know that the ugly duckling was never ugly? He was truly monstrous!
Or that Goldilocks was never a tale about a little girl. It was always a tale about a granny – a mean, thieving granny who has plans for something quite nasty.

Join our poetic storyteller as he unwinds the true stories behind the happily ever afters and discover they’re maybe not as charming as you remember!

Then at 2.00pm in Zombie-Rella & Blood Red Hood; A mysterious vaudeville storyteller with a magical top-hat and coat unwinds the true stories behind the happily ever afters, which are maybe not as charming as you remember!

Discover the true tale of Cinderella, where she dies and becomes a zombie and falls in love with a vampire prince. And of course, there’s the true tale of Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf-hunter who never leaves her home without her shield, axe and blood-red stained cloak.


After the show there will be a chance to meet Joseph and purchase signed copies of his books, as well as talk about his work.
