The Garden Party

SATURDAY 18 & SUNDAY 19 MAY 12Pm – 6pm

Chapelfield Gardens



Ever dreamed of scaling the canopies of a metal jungle, or uniting the world with barricades of baguettes? The Festival’s middle weekend sees the return of our interactive, all-ages Garden Party celebration. With dance, acrobatics, music and more, Chapelfield Gardens is the place to experience the wild and wacky this Festival… and all for FREE!

With a selection of workshops, family activity, local food and drink, you can chill out and make a day of it with all the family!

Our Garden Party performance programme includes some of the UK’s finest outdoor work with new co-commissions through our Without Walls partnership.

Join Apocalyptic Circus for MY HOUSE, a quirky, magical family adventure while Motionhouse bring you their daring new dance-circus adventure – WILD. Spitz & Co’s LES GLORIABLES is a comedy set to re-unite Europe and Upswing’s CATCH ME bring an unexpected acrobatic slant on the questions of age and gender. Plunge Boom bring their latest imaginative family extravaganza – BOING and Talawa Theatre Company’s THE TIDE unpicks the stories and imagery of the most pertinent issue of our era: migration.

You’ll also be able to save the future of dance as Norwich’s fabulous Glass House Dance take you on a clubbing journey through the ages in TIME MACHINE DISCO.
