There’s nothing quite like getting out and about and meeting the masses, and putting a smile on their face! Rob and the gang offer street theatre in various forms, be it generic Entertainingly Different antics or themed shows, such as pirate shows, traditional tales or christmas shows (see performances). There are also a whole host of ‘characters’ that can be called upon when the occasion arises.
Major Wild is a larger than life character who keeps the crowds in line with plenty of interactive antics. He has a big personality and and even bigger mouth! As well as taking to the streets of Bideford, visiting a number of the South West Lakes and the odd Primary School he has led bug and dinosaur hunts at Atlantis Adventure Park
