The group have been learning the art of outdoor seaside performance such as “barking up a crowd”, escapology, blad box routines, magic and storytelling and other family fun enjoyed historically by holidaymakers. The training will ensure the skills involved in beach shows are passed down to the next generation of artists.

Beachside shows with slapstick, songs and Punch and Judy have become rare as holiday...
