WED 17 OCTOBER 11am (SOLD OUT), 1pm & 3pm
Gloucester Library | £3

A circus theatre experience for 2-5 year olds and their not-so-grown-ups. This show is accessible to Deaf and EAL audiences, and all performances are ‘relaxed’ (see below for more details).

Some might be Plink and others are Boo
Why does it matter, what’s the to-do?
Jumbled up people and boxes too small
Come play in our den and discover it all…


Welcome to the topsy turvy world of Plink and Boo. Using acrobatics, live music and mountains of toys, join us in an interactive circus theatre adventure to explore what happens when people don’t fit into boxes (even if it is the neatest place to put them).

Plink and Boo has been created and written by Can’t Sit Still in collaboration with children, parents and childcare professionals from Bristol and Swindon.

Can’t Sit Still creates new, devised performances combining physical theatre, circus and original music. We tell stories, start conversations, and try to change the world.


Suitability: Ages 2-5 years & their not-so-grown-ups

NB:  Plink and Boo is accessible to Deaf and EAL audiences.

All performances of Plink & Boo will ‘relaxed’. This means it’s okay to make noise, pop out if you need to, and anything else that comes with taking little ones out in public! It’s not your conventional theatre performance where you’re expected to sit quietly.
Latecomers will be admitted, although it’s always hugely appreciated if you’re early.

We will have a separate, quieter space if you need a time out, and there will be a buggy park available.

Seating will be on cushions in a circle on the floor. We’ll have a couple of chairs handy if you need one.

Whilst the libraries are accessible, we are very limited on space and as such can only accommodate a limited number of wheelchairs at any one time.
Please email ellie@strikealightfestival.org.uk  if you are planning to come in a chair.
