"Life was never better than on a swing, the higher the better"

Come and enter our world of The Swings. We love playing and swinging about on our giant swing set and we'd love you to have a go too.

Watch as our aerialists swing, climb, play and perform for you. Then the swings are an open experience. 

Your swinging will activate a soundscape full of memories of being on a swing. Feel the rush of air past your face and be inspired by our aerialists with what you can do with a swing!

A 5m high giant swing set, 2 swings, 2 aerialists and a sound installation where you can play, watch, and listen. 

An interactive event for all the family from @AllorNothingADT

Unicorn Dance Party

Wednesday 11 August | 1:30pm & 4pm

 

You are invited to the best dance party ever!

Sparkling unicorns Melody and Luna are looking for new pals, and they've heard there are some unicorns in your area! So, they're throwing the best dance party ever, with easy-to-follow dance moves and the ultimate playlist of everyone's favourite tunes, from Katy Perry to Queen! You are invited to clap your hands, shake your tails and move and groove to some rockin' jams!

With glittering costumes and visual pizazz, this interactive outdoor show for aspiring unicorns aged 5+ and their families will unlock the joy within us all.

Now, let's just hope the unicorns they're looking for turn up!

(Please come dressed for an outdoor event. If you wish, bring a blanket to rest on between dances.)

Circus Workshops

Wednesday 11 August | 1:15pm, 2pm, 2:45pm & 3:30pm

 

Whatever age, skill or ability: circus is for you!

Come and join Delighters' workshops or come and play in our Circus workshop-space to learn a new skill, challenge yourself, have a laugh, achieve something new and leave with a smile on your face.

Delighters' circus workshops cover multiple circus skills including juggling, contact juggling, poi spinning, partner acrobatics, balancing, hula hoops and plate spinning. Circus is a great way to socialise and it teaches that you can keep trying despite failure, that you always have the capacity to improve and learn, and that physical activity can be fun, rewarding and leave you feeling happier.


You don't need to have any prior experience to come along, but if you are still shy bring a friend or your family!
