A man excitedly waits for the guests to arrive at his party. The cake is made, the presents have arrived, and the music is playing – all he needs are his friends to make this the best birthday ever. Enter some unexpected guests: a French cyclist, a man dressed as a giant chicken and a mysterious stranger who has apparently never had a birthday. What ensues is an endlessly entertaining topsy-turvy show that humorously explores difficult topics such as sharing, social exclusion, and not always getting what you want.
A fantastically engaging show for young people to enjoy with the whole family… and there’s even pass the parcel.
The Party is brilliant! All the fun of the circus, but set within a world that all children know, so they intuitively connect with it which enhances their enjoyment all the more. Genuinely one of the best children's shows I have seen in a long time. - Annabel Turpin; Chief Exec and programmer, ARC Stockton

The Flying Bazazi Brothers
This heady mix of celebrity, circus, and family history steeped in tradition is a real one off. The Bazazi Brothers style is part Cirque du Soleil, part Tom Jones - with a little Swayze thrown in for good measure. This riotous double act, dance, juggle, and fall over each other for your viewing pleasure and features internationally renowned superstars Edward and Kaveh Bazazi. Prepare to be amazed, prepare to be dazzled, and prepare to be prepared.
If you want to forget about your troubles and focus on someone else’s, come and see The Flying Bazazi brothers. Ridiculous dancing, dad humour, and a surprising amount of skill and dexterity makes this a show you won’t want to miss.
Great fun, lively, skilled and entertaining. I thought the show was very polished and great fun. The jokes and tricks worked for both adults and children and they were a real boost to the atmosphere of the fete , even the intermittent drizzle didn't dampen their energy and enthusiasm. This show was perfect for our event. - Organiser; Igtham Fete, 2017
