Sandy & Bruno met in the seventies. She was fame hungry, he was doomed to follow her. As one hit wonders, this is a story of their big come-back. With Sandy’s determination and Bruno’s blissful devotion to her, they are here; not by popular demand, but by sheer defiance.
With striking aesthetics and a rousing soundtrack, THE BAND is a quirky, humorous display of desperate ambition and blind affection told through awe-inspiring dance, theatre and circus.
Before The Band
5.30-7.30PM: Fresh Italian street food by Fritto, drink and free entertainment at Invisible Wind Factory
Festival faves Teatro Pomodoro will be on hand to randomly hijack and interrupt proceedings with their own brand of bouffon and clown, and Foolsize Theatre will be introducing the brilliant and blundering soothsayer Madame Sigh-Kick Hunch, who has foreseen your arrival in her caravan of fortune. Come and get cosy, she is expecting you.
After The Band, stay on for live music from Donkey Hokey, dancing and bar until 11pm!
