Whirligig! at The Italian Gardens in Weston-super-Mare on Saturday 13th July 2019Posted on: 11 Jul 2019
From eye-popping outdoor entertainment to weird and wonderful acts to amazing trampoline shows, Whirligig! is day out for the whole family which will be a feast for the eyes and senses when it lands at The Italian Gardens in Weston-super-Mare on Saturday 13th July 2019.
To say there's a a mind-blowing array of stuff going on throughout the day is something of an understatement, with BMX biking workshops, face painting, stilt walking, make-your-own pizzas, a massive stegosaurus and a pop-up prosecco and gin bar (though obviously not for the little 'uns) being a few things to enjoy.
But there will also be a dizzying cavalcade of entertainment to enjoy and some incredible acts such as Gandini Juggling's '8 Songs', a rock 'n roll themed juggling act, giant semi-circular see-saw riding performers Ockham's Razor with their Belly of the Whale, a Spanish-style trampoline show, and a ramshackle old cottage built on chicken legs - to name a few.
Supported by Without Walls - England's biggest network of outdoor arts festivals - this is a unique, must-see cornucopia of festival-style fun, arty acts, quirky performers, eclectic attractions and things you probably thought you'd never see in Weston-super-Mare.
Entry to the uplifting arts experience that is Whirligig is free and everything will kick off from 2pm until 6pm. For more info, have a gander here.
The Italian Gardens is located at 8–10 South Parade, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1JN
